About the Bow Tie Sewing Patterns
The most traditional bow tie shape. This is a medium sized butterfly, and is flattering for most facial shapes and body types. If you’re not sure which pattern to get, try this one.
The Diamond Point Bow Tie is a bit more modern and fashion-forward than a standard butterfly bow tie.
Large Diamond Point:
Makes the biggest (widest) bow tie of all the patterns. The finished tie measures about 6″ wide x 2¼″ high, and is best suited for big and tall persons.
Traditional Diamond Point:
This is a traditional diamond point, with all the curves! Finished bow tie measures approximately 5¼” wide x 2½” high.
Similar to the regular butterfly bow tie, but it’s a little easier to cut and sew since there are no curves. This pattern will make a bow tie that measures about 2″ high x 5″ wide.
Large Straight Butterfly:
Subtly different from the regular butterfly bow tie, but it’s a little easier to cut and sew since there are no curves. The finished bow is about 2½″ high x 5¼″ wide when tied. Ideal for the beginner or inexperienced seamster looking for a classic bow tie shape.
Straight and Narrow:
The slimmest design of all. Think Pee-Wee Herman and Malcolm X. Best suited for slim builds.
The round ends of this design give the bow tie a unique (but subtle) look. Perfect for the man who wants something just a bit different.
