Description

I made Burda #8186 Style B (which came out looking more like Style A) for my husband’s Halloween costume (2010). I also made a quick skinny tie to go with the outfit in the same style and fabric. This was done with an existing tie and tutorial for pattern (tutorial can be found at http://www.designmom.com/2010/08/diy-skinny-ties/). This whole project was honestly WAY too hard for me, I learned a lot while doing it, but I see so many mistakes that I want to take it apart now that there’s no deadline. Beware the backward directions for the welt pockets!

Material Notes

Basic black broadcloth, lining, and LOTS of interfacing
