bow ties ideal for small sized men like my and my friend who asked me if i could make him some to wear with his shirts and had a brilliant idea. they suit well to below average sized faces but have an adjustable strap and can be worn by almost anyone. enjoy (i’m not so formal as to make some for myself but, i made for me an accesorie that resembles a cravat )
i used any dotty – crazy stock fabric we found at the fabric store.
any light fabric with spiffy design would be ideal with some iron-on lining.
you also need the metal parts each bow tie has and can be found in stores relevant to sewing.
