I got a piece of fabric at a sewing store for like $8.00,
wraped it around my fat waist,
and bingo!
I had a cheap sarong, similar to a kilt

Well its plaid...though not all kilts are plaid...but a start.

Here's my second design... http://www.tartanmaker.com/?page=showcase&tartan=2893

Spend an extra buck or so, and put one pleat in it! *L* would be awesome!

Thrift store + women's pleated black skirt with elastic waistband = my 1/8th-assed-kilt. $4.

Yes - I know that's it's not a kilt.

Carry on. :)

Just fabric? People were killed for wearing tartans.

No offense taken. Thinking about it, getting killled over fabric seems kinda silly. But the Brits were kinda dickish that way.

It wasn't the fabric, it was the symbolism behind the fabric. But the Brits were definitely dickish!

Those tartans weren't even invented until the 19th century.

Tartans were not assigned uniquely to individual clans, you mean. :)

At one point, it was forbidden, punishable by death to wear a tartan in scotland.
