So, I have been fighting with technology to bring you a wonderful Vintage Tie, Cravat and Bow Tie Pattern I inherited a while ago. Alas, it was not to be, and creating Patterns with PDF downloadables’ has now made it on to the 2014 list… which is exciting as I have a whole heap of ideas about new Patterns and Kits!!
What I have discovered is this wonderful Tutorial with Free Downloadable PDF from Georgia Leigh, and I think it fits the bill nicely. It is a wonderful and rare thing to come across an easy, relatively quick and super swish Hand Made gift for men. You only need just over half a meter of fabric, lining and interfacing so this doesn’t even need to be an expensive gift indeed, I made three Ties for my Dad many years ago and packaged them beautifully rolled up in a gift box with tissue paper… they looked like sweets!!
Now, your Fella may not want to carry off the snazzy selection above (courtesy of Etsy) however; I am sure you’ll be able to make him something gorgeous with this Tutorial. You could even go so far as to make him a matching pocket square so he looks extra snappy heading off to work in the New Year.
So, without further ado, here’s The Best Men’s Tie Pattern! Click the picture below to start…
And finally, here’s some super cool tips on different ways to tie your Tie!
As ever, it would be wonderful if you shared pictures of your makes either here or on my FacebookPage… I shall make sure and pass on any I receive to Georgia Leigh.
