I made this kilt for him for the Medieval Faire.  The fabric was a cheap poly/cotton blend for $1/yd from Walmart, with the plaid printed on.  It really doesn't hold it's pleats well!  Oh, and I made it for him in one day!

Him looking thrilled wearing it:

Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

I looked up different websites, and they confused me, as I've never done pleats before.  So I used a Simplicity pattern.  The pattern was pretty easy to follow. I don't have the number with me, but it's in the costume section of the pattern book, and the picture is of two guys looking like they are enjoying themselves way too much.   Grin

Haha, sweet. That's really good. The pleats at the back look very authentic.

I have to wear a kilt for work. I wish mine was made of poly cotton, because wool gets freaking hot. Tongue

If you iron it with a vinegar/water mix, it will hold the pleats allot better.  Either use a cloth dipped in the vinegar/water solution and damp down the pleats, or put it in a spray bottle.   Alternatively, lightly starch it and then when dry, iron the pleats down  Cheesy

Hee hee, yeah that vinegar trick does work, my mum used to do it with my school kilt, it kept it's pleats but I'm sure I must have smelled like a walking chip shop!!!!
