leather kilt

Hello, just checked in...

Ok, I have this huge piece of leather, which I want to make a leather kilt with. Does anyone have a pattern or some tips. I did find a pattern for regular kilts, but I guess since it's leather it would probably be better to use a simpler pattern.

Thanks,
gorkon

    For at least a visual reference, Utilikilts makes a leather kilt, which is featured from several angles on their website www.utilikilts.com

    I used to make leather masks and body sculptures. Made a few bags and attempted a shirt once. One thing I learned is that making leather clothing is that it's NOTHING like making the fabric equivalent. Amongs other problems, every needle hole shows, so no ripping out stitches and starting over when you glitch something.

    Good luck!

      Thanks, I'll have a look at it.

      And yes, I've experienced the difference of sewing leather, when I made my own medieval boots.

        leather kilts are HOT..and I dont mean you "look hot" in them!
        I wore a Buddy's Leather Utilikilt to an outing and damn near "Expired" in it! as well as being heavy it was ghastly hot and I sweat profusely in it,and it is an UN-comfortable Kilt.
