Also, though it is late in period and a lot more complex than the modern
kilt, the great kilt was period...it started out as about 7 yards of fabric
which got hand pleated, the wearer then would lie down in the middle of the
pleated fabric and roll it around him, holding it in place with a belt. The
left over fabric would then be pinned with a large brooch over the
shoulder. And it looks incredibly wonderful on a man!! At least on mine
when I can get him to wear it!
