A friend at work bought a set of bagpipes. Why, I have no idea. I told him that he had to have a kilt if he has bagpipes. So, a kilt I made!
The offer to make him a kilt brought on "orders" for 3 more kilts. I love the people I work with! I bought some decently priced plaid material online.
I did not worry about going with official tartan or anything. I used this youtube video to help me out. I added belt loops on the front and back.
The pleats are hard to see with it simply laying on the table. Maybe I'll get a picture of it on the wearer later ;) I used two buttons for a closure. It will allow him to grow a bit if he needs.
I put in a bit of velcro on the inside flap to keep it from sagging.
I love the pleats! I sewed each pleat down at the top.
Yay! This was a fun project.
Now it is on to the next three :)
