Handmade Gentleman’s Necktie

This necktie is made from a pattern I made from scratch on the laptop, I know I know it’s just a necktie just straight lines right!…. But for me this is amazing and could be the start of my own pattern making πŸ™‚

Pattern all printed out and ready to see if it works with fabric.

  1. I used to make ties for my older brother when I was in high school. I would be making myself a dress and he would ask if I had enough to make him a necktie. Many years later, at my daughter’s wedding, my brother and nephew wore ties that I had made.

  2. This looks great. Thank you for the tutorial! I made a tie once but lost the instructions and have not been able to get the tricky folding and stitching part of the points quite right ever since!
