Some hints on making your own kilt. These suggestions have been collated from the highland-dance mailing list.

* Editor's note: the origin of the phrase "The Whole Nine Yards" is actually unknown. There are many theories, including the length of tartan used to make a kilt, but none have been verified. See for example The Phrase Finder World Wide Words, The English Usage FAQ or The Straight Dope.
