Constructing a Scottish arisaid

Looking for a female equivalent to the male Scottish kilt? Consider the arisaid, a patterned, wrapped garment worn by women. The website eHow includes instructions for constructing an arisaid.

The garment measures 7.5 ft. x 5 ft. (2.3 x 1.5 m) and has a fringed edge. While tartans are often used, the traditional pattern is stripes. According to the website, an arisaid can be sewn in less than an hour.
