Why I love hand made DIY bowties
I recently discovered an info graphic that was depicted a step by step process of how to make a bow tie.
It was a tempting offer, since I had a few left over scraps selvages from exquisite materials I had used on earlier projects (*ahem-aprons*). I decided to give it a try, and found:
- Bow ties are really handsome and can adorn a lot more a neck.
- They can be made out of any material, and embellished with very different trims and lace- There is no limit to how creative you can get.
- You can decide how fancy (or un-fancy you would like to make a bow tie depending on the pleats, material, trims, embellishments and style of the tie.
- And finally: they are so easy to make!
Here are some great links to various styles of bows:
Here are photos of what I came up with:
I had to try one on- they are too cute to resist! I wore one to work the other day, and it was a hit with my colleagues. Paired with a pale blue dress shirt, gold cuff links, and ultra skinny black pants, my outfit was feminine and chic.
