Sew 50s Trifold Bow Tie from Redundant Necktie

Found some interesting vintage 50s bow ties last week & was particularly intrigued by a “trifold” bow tie with asymmetric ends.  I figured this would be a good way to use up some redundant neckties made from beautiful silks & no longer worn.

I drafted a pattern & got stitching.  Here is the work in progress.

    Love the idea of recycling men’s silk ties to bow ties and am inspired to copy you.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Nice!
