Tie number two.
This fabric was fabric my dad had picked out when he came to visit me during grad school. I have had it for many years. And I finally got around to sewing it.
Spurred on by my success of conquering my silk tie demon, I was ready to do this one.
This was pretty thick silk fabric, so I didn’t need to interface it. Once again, I used Vogue pattern 7104. Cutting out the pieces was pretty simple. I also, again used the interfacing from another tie although this time I had to cut it down a bit to make the tie the width my dad likes.
This time I took some scrap silk my aunt had given me that matched nicely for the lining. I also used that for the part which holds the neck tie back which is also attached by hand. The tied was stitched close by hand as well.
This one was much faster than the last. And again, my dad loved it! Plus no one else will have a tie like this one 🙂
