I completely adore vintage bow ties for men and made this pattern originally as a gift for my boyfriend. I regularly make him ties now out of every fabric imaginable! I use this pattern all of the time; it's so quick and easy to whip up a unique and custom bow tie for the evening. I love to hem a skirt or dress of mine and use the left over fabric to make a matching bow tie. Since only a small amount of fabric is required, it's an effective way to use up your fabric remnants.

The pattern you'll receive includes simple and easy step-by-step instructions, with pictures for each step, diagrams, and sewing tips. The pattern has been thoughtfully and carefully created, with all skill levels in mind, and thoroughly tested to make sure it's easy to understand.

Easy to follow directions. Turned out really cute. I can never figure out how to do a good slipstitch, but luckily I had matching thread so it turned out fine!
