I made this bow tie in leftover purple silk crepe so my fiance matches my dress! My own personal stroke of genius here was to use the metal sliders from an old bra instead of going out and buying the sliders suggested in the pattern, so it ended up being a free project! The other change was that I used very lightweight interfacing on the entire bow tie, and cut it on the grain despite the bias instructions (just because I was dealing with scraps).
