I did a lot of online searching for a free and easy to follow skinny tie pattern. I found the perfect pattern/instructions on the blog Joe & Cheryl. Cheryl geniusly took one of Joe's old ties to copy the pattern from, so it's the perfect shape for a skinny tie. Check out their blog for full instructions :)
|I used leftover blue silk from my wedding dress for the inner fabric!|
After tapping and cutting my pattern pieces out, I cut all my fabric. Pretty much everything has to be cut on the bias, so the tie will bend & tie-up nicely. Because I was using silk, and silk is all wiggly, I used a rotatory cutter. The rotary cutter also worked well, since I was mostly cutting long straight lines. When I had all the pieces, I sewed together the tie. Cheryl's instructions are amazing, they made it so simple to put together.
I definitely want to make some more ties, maybe with some vintage silk or some nice wool! Father's Day is right around the corner too - ties make great gifts ya'll!
