I (as usual) didn't bother with a pattern. I more or less visualized what I wanted and went from there.
I cut the fabric leaving the selvage at the bottom. I folded it over and stitched a hem with a double needle. Then I began folding the pleats.
I finished folding the pleats. Stabbing myself at least 45 or 50 times in the fingers with pins. Great fun!
Then I sewed belt loops onto the apron part that I was going to put at the top of the pleats in the back of the kilt.
Then I attached the apron to the top of the pleats.
I sewed the front panels. I lined the inside panel so I wouldn't have the rough duck cloth rubbing against my, well, you know...
Note the lining on the inside flap below. Reduced chafing!
I'll get better pictures of me in it as soon as I can.
Folded for storage. The stitching across the pleats is to keep them intact until August. I'll pull them before I plan to wear it.
It still needs buttons and I need to make a "sporrin", but for the most part I'm done building it.
