I made a tie the other day.
My very first tie.
It was an order for a friend who specified the very electric blue of the fabric.
I thought that making a tie would be a walk in the park but it took me almost a whole day to finish with a lot of aligning, unpicking and re-stitching.
It was no small feat, I can tell you, so I'm quite proud of how well it turned out. (I even made a matching pocket square.)
This is the pattern I used, Simplicity 9962.
It's got all sorts of other men's accessories I'd like to try, especially the slippers which can be made for the whole family.
