Description

This is one of 5 items i am making out of silk ties … just because I can :~D

I love the whole idea of making something so feminine out of something predominantly masculine.

I have said this project is intermediate.. mostly it is made from a basic basket weave of the ties.. there is very little sewing involved … but it is just enough fiddle to scare the novice…

Material Notes

Purchasing your ties from charity shops means you have one of the cheapest 100% silk dresses you could possibly want .. this one cos tme all of £5 !!!
