    awesome. i accidentally rated it a 4, but it should be a 5. i didn’t bother with the clip because i was lazy – you can just pin the sides together once you’ve tied it, otherwise i am sure a velcro/hook device would suffice.

    akpme1: You can buy bow tie hardware as a kit from many fabric stores, but they are usually a hook, eye and slide. (The hook and eye take the place of a second slide.) In more generalized stores with a fabric department, look near where bra-repair and belt hardware is stocked to find sliders.

    Sew News magazine recommended Newark Dressmaker Supply (newarkdress.com or 800-736- 6783) as a mail order source for bow tie hardware a few years ago.

    Gorgeous! Love to see these made with fabric from old silk, regular, ties. Great retro fabric and they would be wide enough for heaps of cloth!
