Bought a bunch of gent’s ties in a charity shop to experiment with feathering and shirring. This deconstructed necktie has been given a new life as a neckpiece to cheer up dull outfits. Because it is silk it is very light and quite warm for such a small piece of clothing!
Would look great with semi-precious beads sewn on – in fact, talk about my next project…
Silk tie, shirring elastic, thread, machine.
