Please note that for ladies’ needing larger sizes * - it is best to have the kilt skirt rather than the proper kilt. The proper kilt sits higher on the waist, is hand sewn and lined around the small of the back. The kilted skirt is machine sewn and unlined, and therefore more comfortable to sit on the body. It is better to have the Kilted Skirt if the difference between the waist and seat is more than 8”.
