Dh and his buddies decided they want "sport" kilts to wear for golfing this summer

(specifically to the company tornament weekend)

There's a few on ebay but size is a factor, plus shipping and exchange rates....

I noticed that Simplicity has one in their costume/historical section right now - #8913 - it's certainly not complicated to make... I'm just curious if anyone else has given this a try cause I'd like to know how it hangs (vs. my bro's has a *real* kilt)

Stacey

who can't believe she's making a SKIRT for dh!!!!

at HIS request!!

as if I have the time anyways - LOL

AAACK!

I did a search, and found several interesting things...

First, there is a how to make a quilt page at http://www.scottishdance.net/highland/MakingKilt.html

There is a place called "Sport Kilt" but it doesn't list prices *or* say where you can buy them

*and* real kilts cost upwards of $500 at a discount! (e-kilt.com!)!!!

I have seen men in kilts (a lot of Scots worked for the company and when we were in England, they would wear them to the Christmas party when everyone else was in tux and/or little black dress...) and on the right man, they are spectacular! Of course, he'd need a sporran (although that might get in the way of his swing! LOL) and the little dagger (Sgian Dhus) in the right high knee sock as well, right?

Want to see a pic of the finished project?

I altered the pattern a bit for better fit,

and think it turned out pretty good.

I *LOVE* it!

Now all you need to do is get him some high socks with a matching plaid cuff on the top and a different shirt (I don't think kilts were meant to go with blue chambray! LOL)

hehe...

I'm working on "flags" for his socks already,

and they'll all be wearing company golf shirts that weekend.

I've got 3 more lined up to make next month for the rest of the foursome,

since the trial kilt was a success.

I can't wait for a pic of them all out on the greens together for my photo album.

I love it, too! I will look forward to seeing the pics of all of them out golfing in those! They should turn a few heads. LOL!


Our minister is a Scot and plays the bagpipes. I love it when he gets all dressed up!

According to the holidays board here at H&G, April 6 is National Tartan Day here in the US

(I Have NO idea who thinks these things up! LOL)!

Do you suppose your DH would wear his kilt to celebrate that day?
