    what the ups man brought me today

    ten yards of this:



    It's rather lighter than I'd hoped (about 7 oz per square yard), but for less than two bucks a yard, I'm no too disappointed.

    It's usual to pleat this to the white stripe?

    I had my Royal Stewart kilt pleated to the yellow stripe, I've been told it is quite unique. Most Royal Stewart kilts I've seen are pleated to the sett. To give you an idea here is what mine looks like.

    I was just thinking about the yellow stripe too Glenn. Looks like a very unique pleating pattern, I really like the looks of it.

    If the material is too light, use it double - have a selvage and a cut edge at the top and a fold at the bottom edge. Iron the folded fabric carefully on the inside and press in the lower fold before starting to pleat - just check the layers match up as you work - push a pin through against a vertical line and see that it emerges by the same vertical on the other side.

    If you have the cut edge a fraction lower than the selvage and at the back, as you pleat much of the raw edge is enclosed.

    Doubling up is a ploy often used to make stage costumes from lighter than period fabric, to make it move right.

    Great deal. Look forward to seeing the finished kilt.
