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.
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.
