based on the free pattern, David
I use different fabric for front and back to give the tie a small amount of contrast
I redrew the pattern to make it into a batwing bowtie
and since it’s a batwing I did not have to worry much about the fit as I could fold a bow anywhere.
I ignored the slider part and made it in one piece by doubling side B of the pattern
It was really easy to make for a beginner
