    Yes but I am eccentrically committed to wearing a kilt all day every day for a year for my charity so I can't pin it to jeans! I will give it a go when I can wear pants again (up to $7500 now). This is what I did in the meantime.



    But with this one being a toddler kilt I am making from scraps as practice for my mother-in-law's, with the dell being only 3.75", the vice got tedious, so I ended up just putting more pins in and stretching+pinching between each and every stitch. I think I will use it for the larger kilt though.

    AFAIK some military kilts were pinned until fairly recent times. I'll have to find it, but I'm sure that I saw a WWII piper where you can see the pins.

    AFAIK neither civilians nor military wore belts under their jackets/waistcoats to hold a kilt up. I believe this to be a modern idea.
