Position the bow tie so that one end hangs roughly 1. The back of the Bowtie may look a little busy but no one will see that part. It will be concealed in the next steps. Remove keeper loop and label on the back of the tie.
It should take the shape a rectangle. So far, so good right? Fold your tie to the right once, then back to the left. Don't worry if your tie sticks out on the sides a little. It will be concealed in the next steps. Fold the tail back to the right until you reach the middle of the rectangle. This is to help make wrapping your bowtie easier. Now for some pics! Pick up your Bowtie and turn it to the front. Turn the tail of the tie to where the inside if the tail is facing you. It may feel a little weird in the back but don't worry, it's normal.
Wrap the tail of the tie up the middle of the Bowtie and around to the back. The back of the Bowtie may look a little busy but no one will see that part.
It will all come together, trust me. Place skinny tie over interlining matching up the tips and make marks to guide the outline of the skinny tie onto the interlining.
Cut along the lines to remove excess lining. Once one side of the tie is folded over and ironed there may be excess fabric. If when folded over, the edge goes beyond the interlining, cut the portion surpassing the interlining. Cutting excess fabric eliminates the possibility of creating excess bulk in the back of the tie. Repeat step 10 on the opposite side, eliminating additional excess fabric. Using thread that is the same color as the tie prepare for sewing the slip stitch we used red thread to aid the visibility of the steps.
Start sewing at the bottom undermost blade so that the knot is hidden. Pull the thread through and pull needle through to the tucked in portion on the back of the top blade. Repeat step 13 until your tie is completely stitched together up to the knot of the old slip stitch. This sturdy knot will keep your new slip stitch in place and keep your newly crafted skinny tie from unraveling.
Thread the needle through the fabric to the back of the top blade. Hold the needle with one hand and thread in the other. Loop the thread around the needle counterclockwise 3 times over the needle and simply pull needle through while holding the knot near the fabric. Pin your keeper loop to the back of the tie. Stitch the keeper loop back in place by using the same stitch as step If the keeper loop exceeds the width of the tie, cut it down to size.
Feeling like a bow tie but don't have one around? Youtuber Phill Wade shows us how to tie a regular tie into a bow tie for just such an emergency. The process is a tad complicated, but kind of. After you tied the loop in step three, it made a loop in the back of the bow tie. You should push the larger folded part into this loop, and the shorter folded end into the shorter end. Then pull both sides to complete the bow tie. Pull your collar back down. Now just stand in front of a mirror and keep adjusting the bow tie. Pull on both ends until you are satisfied with the look. Put your finger on the tie where you envision the location of the bow tie's knot in the center of the rectangle. Pinch the long side of the tie and create a concave arch with the material, creating a crease along the seam on the underside of the tie. The next loop creates the center knot of the bow tie.
