So a kilt with a full width of 48 inches was made for around a 32 waist, a kilt with a full width of 51 inches would be for around a 34 waist.
So I did this and it measured out to 53, than came out to ~35 when multiplied by .666. Does this mean it was made smaller? How difficult is it to move the straps?
