Necktie T-shirt Refashion

This necktie refashion is the first sewing project I made off of a Pinterest search. I have been collecting ideas and patterns since 2010 when I made a mini skirt out of ties. Looking for patterns became sort of an obsession since. I love the sophistication that goes with updating men’s fashions for women. This project came from a tutorial by Mckell’s Closet titled Ruffle Necktie Tee Tutorial.

My necktie t-shirt came out differently because I made bigger ruffles, used a t-shirt with a shorter V neckline (I think hers may have been a scoop neck), and may have used a wider tie. I stitched both sides down (and did some fancy work to stitch under the ruffles and hide my stitch lines), which flattened the folds. McKell simply stitched straight down the middle, making her ruffle tie fluffier.

Although it was not mentioned in the tutorial, I cut open my tie (where it’s stitched closed) and removed the thick interfacing, making the material easier to fold and lay down. Different ties have different consistencies. Some ties need their interfacing removed, and others are thin enough with the interfacing; feel the tie before making a decision to remove its insides.
