How to measure for a kilt:

  1. On the adjacent diagram you will see a line for the waist just at the navel, using a measuring tape measure at that line, keeping the tape firm.

  2. Measure eight inches down from the waist to get the hip measurement, making sure that the tape is slightly looser and that you get the fullest of hips.

  3. Make sure (and this is very important) you have someone who can measure from your waist to the third top the the knee. You can also kneel on the floor and have measurements taken like this (it is an old-fashioned way to measure and was used in the army but is a very accurate way of measuring).
  4. How to measure for a Jacket:

  Ladies measurements

How to measure for a waistcoat or blouse:

  1. Bust should be measured at the fullest part


How to measure for a kilted skirt:

  1. Measure the waist firmly

  2. Measure eight inches down from the waist to get the hip measurement, making sure that the tape is slightly looser and that you get the fullest of the hips.

Please note that the length of the skirt cannot exceed 28", as this is the width of the cloth.
