8 Yard machine stitched Kilt
Measure around waist at navel height. Take measurement firmly, so that kilt may sit comfortably without falling down. Do not breath in or hold your breath.
B) Seat Measurement
Measure around the broadest part of the seat/hips. This measurement should be taken with 2 fingers inside the tape to avoid it being too tight.
C) Kilt Length
You will need someone to assist with this measurement. Stand with your feet comfortably apart and have your assistant measure from the top of your hip bone (approximatly level with the navel), to the top of the knee or mid knee as desired. It is personal preference as to where you would like the kilt to sit but as a general rule the kilt should not sit above or below the knee cap.
D) Full Height
This is a useful measurement to help validte the Kilt Length measurement.

These kilts are made in SCOTLAND by St Kilda Holdings in Glasgow. Use our Tartan Finder to browse the widest available range of tartans, all from Scottish mills, and in a variety of weights. These kilts are fully canvas lined and made with either 2 or 3 buckles to ensure an excellent fit.
Our machine stitched kilts are made exactly the same way as our traditional hand sewn kilts, only machined to speed up the process! The kilt is machine stitched and hand finished from 8 yards of worsted wool, available in our full range of tartans from Lochcarron of Scotland, Marton Mills, Strathmore Woollens and House of Edgar. Please note that costs vary depending on the mill and tartan range. Kilt pin and sporran may be purchased separately.
Some of the less common tartans may need to be specially woven. Should this be the case the weaving time can be up to 8 weeks with a further 2 weeks making time. Kilts under this category will generally have additional costs but we will of course notify you if this is the case, and do our utmost to ensure the kilt is delivered on time.
If you have any queries regarding the measurement process, or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
