The World's Largest Kilt

Some stats: 177 yards of Black Watch tartan with full pleating at the rear per a normal philibeg. He's 22.6 feet around his waist (below the Tulsa belt buckle) and getting it up above his bum was the single hardest part! Tulsa Fire Department actually made it work in addition to the two extension lifts and without their help we would not have been able to cinch it up and make it look proper. We left it in place for one week and then took it down and brought it out to the field where our Games are held annually for display.

The Black Watch Tartan sett of this material was greatly enlarged for some reason when it was woven. It does not look like Black Watch to me up close and it was also made from acrylic and not wool for weight reasons (in case it rained).

Here is the pic of Steven Campbell and Judy McLain by the Tulsa Golden Driller wearing his new World's Largest Kilt. Steven Sewed up the Kilt and is also Managing Director of the Oklahoma Scottish Festival and Judy McLain sewed in the massive pleats.
