We put the same care and detail into our Kids Kilts that we do in our Casual Kilt. The kilt is made from the same washable & stain resistant Poly Viscose fabric that we use for our Casual and Semi Traditional kilts. We also add a 2" hem to our kid's kilts to allow them to be lengthened as your wee bairn grows taller. These kilts are made to measure and have a long piece of velcro in the waist to allow for several inches of adjustability.
Measuring for your kilt: We would ask that you measure carefully for our kilts. Since these are custom made to fit the measurements provided, you will need to be sure of the exact sizing. We will not refund in the case of mistakes in measuring. Detailed measuring instructions can be found in the "Measuring Instructions" tab below this text.
The Casual Kilt can either be worn at the "True Waist" (A) like a traditional kilt or at the "Jeans Waist" (B). This is where the top of the kilt will sit.
DO NOT HOLD YOUR STOMACH IN. You’ll only going to get a kilt that's too small. Just relax and stand "at ease".
Make sure to use a good sewing tape measure. If you don't have a sewing tape measure, you can use a leather belt to measure. Wrap it around you, mark it and then lay it flat on a metal tape measure to get the measurement.
The tape measure should be snug – as snug as you will be wearing the kilt.
*Note: It will probably be 2 to 4 inches more than your pants size. This is common.
*TIP: BIG guys with large bellies may want to wear the kilt around the naval, as it gives a more flattering appearance.
With the same tape measure, measure around the absolute largest part of your rear.
Take this measurement a little LOOSELY. You should be able to slide a finger between the tape measure and your body when you measure.
This is the number we use for your hip size. In most cases, it's about 4-6 inches larger than the waist measurement.
If possible, it’s best to take the length measurement wearing shorts and a form fitting t-shirt. There are 3 different ways to measure length:
1) With assistance
2) With bath towel assistance
3) Without assistance
1) Length Measurement with assistance
Stand tall with your back straight. Do NOT look down or bend over as this will change the length measurement. Just stand tall and face forward.
Have the other person measure down the SIDE of your leg. On your side, put the "0" end of the tape measure at the top of where your kilt will be (the same height you took your waist measurement from). Measure from that point down the side of your body to the middle of your knee.
The number on the tape that is right where the bottom edge of the kilt will be is the length.
2) Length Measurement with bath towel assistance
Take a bath towel and FOLD IT so that it is 22" long.
Wear a pair of shorts, so you can see your knees and stand roughly 10 feet back from a full length mirror. Hold the towel up to your waist, putting the top of the towel at the spot you took the waist measurement.
If the 22" length hits below your knee, shorten the towel by folding another inch or two, so that the bottom edge hits you square in the middle of the kneecap.
If the 22" length hits above your knee, lengthen the towel by unfolding an inch or two, so that the bottom edge hits you square in the middle of the kneecap.
Once you have the top of the towel sitting at the top of where you want to wear the kilt and the bottom edge hitting the middle of your knee, measure the length of the folded towel from the top to the bottom. That will be your kilt length measurement.
3) Length measurement without assistance
Kneel on the floor with your back straight. You're going to measure down the SIDE of your leg to the floor.
From the top of where your kilt will be (the same height you took your waist measurement from), measure down the side of your body to the floor down the side of your leg. It's easier to put the "0" end of the tape measure barely touching the floor and the numbered end at the top.
SUBTRACT 1" FROM THIS MEASUREMENT to have the kilt sit at the middle of the knee.
Use the following chart for reference. These are typical height / length measurements.

- Fantastic kilt Coinneach
Price Value QualityI ordered the largest size (in waist and length) for my 8 year old son who is, as his pediatrician says, the size of an average 11 year old. But of course, he's still shaped like a kid, and this kilt fits perfectly. If, like my older son, he grows up and thins down, he should get a couple of years out of this with the hem. And there's one right behind him to wear it when he's done. What a bargain! Thanks, Ron and USA Kilts!! (Posted on 3/7/2018)

- stands up to abuse and looks great Evan
Value Quality PriceAfter being dissapointed by a mediocre kid's kilt from ebay, I decided to bite the bullet on this one for my toddler. I was not disappointed. You can definitely see the care that goes into these quality kilts and my son gets complemented anywhere he goes in it.
Not only that, but it's tough and has held up to rough play and one instance of car sickness. No problems cleaning out that mess in the laundry.
Recommended for anyone who wants a tough kid's kilt that looks great and fits properly. (Posted on 7/20/2017)

- Excellent Children's Kilts! Cygnus
Price Value QualityI have three of these "kid's kilts" for my own children, and they are excellent! I purchased the first one almost four years ago for my son and, thanks to the velcro closure and very generous hem (not to mention a side pleat that was easy to reduce to get more room in the waist), I only just had to get a larger one for him this year! If you have kids, you know you're lucky if clothes fit for more than a few months, let alone a few years! It did take some effort on my part, but I really only have basic sewing skills and it was still doable.
Add to that the fact that the PV material is machine-washable, so you don't have to fret the spilled haggis, and you have yourself the very best child's kilts in the market.
I cannot recommend them too highly! (Posted on 10/29/2015)
