Looking for a kilt pattern?

Well, there really is no such thing, not in the sense that you could go to the fabric store and buy a pattern for a shirt. But this book will teach you how to make a kilt, easy to follow and with no pattern necessary!

    Just received mine, very friendly and great service. I love the format of the manual and its high quality print. It is VERY concise and easy to follow, can’t wait to grab some fabric and get stuck into it.

  9. Patricia P

    Ordered the book as a gift for my son, who makes his own (and wife’s) ren garb. After leafing through it I can seen why it was number one on his “Santa’ list. Wonderful book – and got here very fast – thank you!

  10. Kevin C.

    Best price anywhere! I thought at this price I would get the first printing with the minor errors but received the second printing. Excellent!

  11. Rev RPB

    Extraordinary book, detailed and very helpful in planning, lay out and final construction.
    I am very pleased with the book and Kilts-n-Stuff and their fine service.

  12. Roberta C.

    Our son traveled to Scotland in August with members of the Shadle Park Pipe Band and Highland Dancers, and purchased Henderson plaid yard goods to make a kilt. The details in the book will help us measure for the kilt and create a wonderful souvenir of his trip.

  13. Jared B.

    Highly detailed, insightfully written, and eminently respected, The Art of Kiltmaking is the ultimate guide to traditional kiltmaking. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone who wants to do the job properly. The text, illustrations and construction of the book make it extremely usable. The additional resources, such as tips on assessing workmanship are useful for anyone contemplating purchasing a kilt, let alone making one.

  14. Margaret C.

    I purchased this to help me make two kilts for my sisters that are graduating from Basic Combat training in August. I love how informative it is and how there are plenty of ilustrations to help me understand how everything is done.

  15. Shannon Harrington

    Very informative. Shows that there are more things you can do wrong than do right while making a kilt. The style of binding makes it practical to use at your sewing machine

  16. Cean Comley

    I purchased this book as a gift, but did read through it before giving it away. It is very detailed and informative. The color photos go a long way to explain what is said.
