    What I'm wearing is one piece of tartan, 4 yards long by 55-ish inches wide. I lay it on my bed and pleat the middle, with aprons on either side. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R71wNqcRn7k. That's the general idea. However, I prefer Isaac Walter's depiction here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peI1LSpTVVk&t=31s. However, the maple leaf tartan that I have here doesn't have belt loops yet so I pleat it every time I put it on.

    Best,
    Jonathan

    Thanks for the extra pics. I like the belted plaids down with the extra swing. Historically accurate or not it is likely the neatest pleats, waist and aprons I have seen in this style.

    Oddly enough , just this morning I think I watched the video you linked (I am at work on a mobile so can't be sure). I always had trouble believing that people would take such care to make pretty pleats while lying in the wet, dirty ground . I do prefer the look it achieves as being neater and less poofy than that as demonstrated in the video with the loops.

    Okay, I'm taking cover before I get taken to task by all the reenactors, traditionalists modernist and all those in between.

    I think that the original people who wore this garment on a daily basis probably wore it in a manner similar to Isaac's video. However we do live in 2019 and if I'm going to walk around in this world of ours then I'm going to try and make the kilt as neat and tidy as possible. Further, with the back long, most of my local people simply see it as another kilt.

    Please note that I put this thread in the contemporary subforum for a reason. 🤗🤓

    Here are a couple photos of a belted plaid I made up a year and a half ago, perhaps 2 now. What some of us have started calling the Mk1 custom run of Govt Sett tartan. Not the best photos, I know......

    Luke, thanks for sharing. Would you put it on with belt loops or by folding it yourself?

    Best,
    Jonathan

    The custom Gov’t sett tartan looks really nice. I love the intensity of the colors. Wilson’s?

    A few days ago it was very cool and rainy. With the help of some friends I made some wool Native-style leggings. Worked wonders.

    I'm not a fan of wearing the belted plaid over the shoulder like that, it just feels too restricting to me. If it's cold and wet I'll wear it over my shoulders like a cloak. I'll have to see if I have any pictures to attach...

    ::EDIT::

    I found some pictures...

    It's good for keeping off the rain and for cuddles/protecting your child from the rain as well.

    Thanks much
