My beau's bow tie

One of the first things David said when I told him I wanted to make a special dress for Valentine's Day was 'I'll make a matching bowtie'!  How wonderful is that?  I think we are definitely made for each other!

He gathered the left over fabric from my dress (which is in red crepe back satin) and took one of his existing bow ties and cut out the fabric (there was barely enough!):


Then he sewed it together all by hand!!!!  Check out the amazing detail:

Here it is with the tux jacket:

How wonderful is that?

  13. That is so cute; I'm impressed.
    My husband made himself a (long) tie once, from a McCall's pattern. It was pretty ugly because of the fabric choice, but I was so proud of him (:
