Pretty colors though!
And have you seen what goes on on the back of ties - all those fabulous co-ordinating fabrics. Gorgeous!
And layers. Let me tell you about the layers - there was the outer silk, a thicker, shaped, bias cut, woven interfacing (wool I think), and a silk-organza partial lining. Phew!
Anyway, this isn't a blog about menswear . . . . . . so after following a number of links this is the result!
Some very respectable 7cm wide ties. Much more 'in' I think you will agree!
And I managed to keep the makers' label to use as the tie stays/keepers - to stop the two ends flapping around willy-nilly . . . .
Not bad eh?!
'Hold on a sec', I hear you shout - 'what happened to the green number?' Well, unfortunately I got a little scissor happy, cut it too narrowly and it now resides in that great fabric shop in the sky. I don't think the owner will notice, do you?!
All in all, it was a quickish sewing job. Probably about one hour per tie. Measuring, trimming and hand-sewing. I am quite pleased with how they turned out!
How about you - do you like sewing for others?
