must-be-done-by-tomorrow-! kid's tie
Added Sep 9, 2010
a child size flat bottom necktie.
Pattern is Simplicity 8723, women size ties and bags and cap package from 1978.
To size it for a smaller person, I made the tie according to the pattern halfway, put it on the boy, and saw that I needed to shorten it by 30cm. Now I know. Finished length is 114cm.
It would have been an hour’s job, but we had to be on the road. I turned the edge for one side only and slip stitched the edges with the turned side on top.
