Any good kilt patterns?

Hey, those of you who don't know me, I'm the sort of crazy player that carts four pistols onfield and runs around like a madman.

That being said, I need play gear to accent my style, Have a bunch of scrap denim from decommissioned jeans, And a wild notion to make a kilt from it. Yes, I know it's no tartan, But there's something poetic about making a kilt from the remains of dead pants.

But, I need a pattern, I've never done this before. Any tips would be appriciated. I plan on treating the fabric with a propreitary tie-dye process that gives the fabric Mandelbrot like patterns, so after pleating, it should look insane.

Only question is, are you going to wear it regimental style? I'd hate to be on the field if you did.

Doc: I've got plenty: Just grabbed my old stash from my parent's, got THIRTY legs in total. Each leg is 30"x24" or so....

Wicked: Oh, undoubtedly. I play pistol mainly because I have no need to compensate for anything.

LOL. We've thought about doing this for our circle of friends. Most of us are Scottish and nuts enough to do it. But we'd have to wear matching boxers, just for decency. Or we've thought of flesh coloured boxers with soemthing drawn on them, so when people see, they aren't quite sure.
