 Originally the kilt was just a length of woolen tartan cloth, not a
 tailored garment. <snip> >>
 'Modern' dress kilts have 8-9 yards of cloth, depending on the pleating, 
sporting kilts like the ones used by highland game participants, 5-6, and 
replicas of early 'Braveheart' type kilts would have 20-24 (and more ) yards 
of cloth, never pleated.
