Tutorial: Retro, skinny, or reversible bow tie variations, plus how to resize the pattern

Kelly from Restitch Me shares a series of posts on her blog showing how to customize Martha Stewart’s DIY bow tie pattern.  Her first post shows how to size it up to fit a larger neck.  Her second post shows how to alter the pattern to create some fun variations – one with a more retro shape, and one that’s a skinny bow tie.  In her third post in the series, she shows how to cut it from two fabrics to make it reversible, including a variation that makes the knot in the middle a different fabric than the bow itself.  How cool is that!  Go to the resizing tutorialGo to the shaping variationsGo to the reversible variation.
