Made two ties for the two most important men in my life: my dad and my soon-to-be-husband! Its really for the upcoming wedding. Used pattern and tutorial from here:
except i used sewing machine instead of hand sewing.
My fiance loves it! my dad, being a grandson of a professional tailor/owner of one of shanghai’s big fashion industry back in the day, liked it, but told me that REALLY fancy ties does not have iron marks on the side, and should look less flat than that. darn! so maybe another try later on!
