Since the kilt is generally a men's garment, one would normally not encounter as much of a problem here in making a kilt for a man.I've made a number of kilts in the past and the biggest challenge for me was fitting the pleats to fit my body. At the time, there was a 12 inch difference between my waist and hips, so forming the pleats to fit while maintainin the lines of the plaids I worked with was a bit of a fuss.

BrotherTailor sticks his nose in every now and then, but isn't really one of the "regulars". We'll see if he chimes in.MarkReaves wrote:I know this post is old, but is the original poster still around?
As I see it, it's a problem of "critical mass". Plain old blokes who just want the ability to add skirted garments into their wardrobes seem to be in somewhat short supply -- or at least those willing to talk about the matter in public where the search engines are watching. We're pretty thin on the ground, as it were. Of the 440-odd registered users, only a couple of dozen are really active, and a couple dozen more are occasional posters -- and that's on a world-wide stage, too. So, SkirtCafe is both "cutting edge" and a "niche" board at the same time -- and we have a complete range of tastes amongst ourselves, which sometimes leads to "interesting" discussion.Also curious why this board is so dead...
You might try www.Stillwaterkilts.com as they are a good alternative
price wise. I have 3 and quite happy with the product.
