Kit includes one yard of 100% Organic Cotton Sateen fabric, printed with pattern pieces and instructions, and seven (7) sets of hardware to make the bow ties adjustable in size. Choose your bow tie shape from the drop-down menu above.
You’ll need the following in order to complete these bow ties:
- Basic sewing skills (this is a beginner-level project)
- A pair of sharp scissors, or a rotary cutter with a new blade and cutting mat (preferred)
- A basic straight-stitch sewing machine outfitted with bobbin and sharp needle
- good quality thread
- straight pins
- An iron and ironing board
- Medium-weight fusible interfacing (optional)
- A turning tool (or you can make one by straightening out a piece of coat-hanger wire with a loop at the end)
About the Patterns
Note: matching fabric by the yard in the Baroque patterns is also available for purchase separately.
Hot fuchsia and red-orange make this design pop. WARNING: Not for shy, retiring types. Wearing this WILL get you noticed.
With its bright yellow and purple design against a pink background, Fancy is no wallflower. But who wants to be a wallflower?
Dandy: A person who places critical importance on appearance, refined language, and the pursuit of leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self. In describing the “metaphysical dandy”, the great French poet Charles Baudelaire defined the dandy as “one who elevates aesthetics to a living religion”.
Elegant of style and romantic of color, Verona’s hot pink and bright blue duel for affection. Love or loyalty? Why not both? The outcome is the same (SPOILER: everybody dies at the end.)
This dark interpretation of the Baroque design speaks with a forked-tongue; it’s a little bit evil. Wear it in a devious mood, and you can get away with almost anything!
With colors inspired by the (now common, but once considered rare and exotic) goldfish, which was first introduced to Europe by the East India Trading Company as a gift for the Marquise in the 18th century, although they had been domesticated in the Far East a thousand years or more earlier. Fun Fact: Before goldfish became common in Europe, it was a tradition for a husband to give his wife a goldfish on their first anniversary as a symbol of prosperity to come.
Named after Oscar Wilde, it evokes opulence and decadence… think of green carnations in lapels and peacock feathers in hats. Daring, but always polite. Perfect for Steampunk or Victorian costumes., or of course for anyone with too much style!
