What about a regular tie? Any suggestions? :)

This is modified from an old Vogue pattern for tuxedo fixin's, which I think included a cummerbund, ascot, and the bow tie pattern. That pattern might still be available. It is drafted for use with hardwear to make it pre-tied, which I think is tacky, so I converted it to a tie-your-own. This is easy to do, but be sure to measure the wearer's neck, and allow for wiggle room, the bulk of a shirt collar, and about 1" at each end for the knot. So, for a 17.5" neck size make the tie at least 18-19" from knot area to knot area. Cut it on bias and they will stretch, as needed. You could also just trace off a bow tie that fits your wearer, and add 1/4" SA's. For these ties, one size does not fit all.
