    Alan,
    What a wonderful set of instructions! You could have easily sold them but you've decided to share your hard work with everyone for free. Thank you very much.

    My wife is now wondering why I want to dig out our sewing machine. She said I couldn't buy any more kilts but didn't say anything about making them.

    The new, improved and revised edition is about 3 weeks away, so you might want to hang tight and see what develops before starting your next project. I'm going to make at least one more, and possibly two more with a totally different waistband construction. Also, I'll have a mess 'o pictures to add to the document, which should make it easier.

    I've a reason to change how to do the waistband on the X-Kilt, and I want to try it at least once before writing it up. It will be a little bit more complicated, but I think it'll result in something good.....so hang tight.

    One thing for sure, with the different waistband, you're REALLY going to want to work in cotton/poly twill and not heavy canvas.

    BTW, until I have the new waistband thing worked out, I'm going to take down the Instructions. Not to worry, there'll be a new set up there, soon!

    Thanks for the pleat layout. I'm actually working on designing/making a kilt right now. It will be my first, and a lot of the info I've found here has been helpful in my design. I missed the actual document, you took it down before I could see it, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you have so far.

    Thanks,

    I should add that using the floor as suggested is a recipe for for disaster if you have one or more cats. I speak from experiance.

    I did get the directions before they were pulled and my X-Kilt is nearing completion. I just sewed down the fell last night. I am planning on adding a rolled waistband to mine. The box pleats seem easier to build and sew.

    I used a very light poly cotton camo twill. Should be great for summer hikes and other hot weather recreation. I will post picks.

    Thanks for all your hard work Alan.

    I'll be starting on a black Xkilt tonight. This link was a great addition to my catalog of kilt making instructions. Thanks, O'Neille
