Bow Tie

These pretty bow tie shirts are all the rage this fall. I found this great 80's styled one at my local thrift store for $3.50! With a few quick alterations this 80's beauty is ready to be worn again. 


Step 1: Unpick shoulder seams 
Step 2: Pin excess fabric that you would like to take in (see above)
Step 3: Sew the areas you have pinned 
Step 4: Cut excess fabric 
Step 5: Pin the sleeves to the the bodice and sew
Step 6: Surge, or do a zigzag stitch on any material you have cut to keep the material from fraying

  2. That is just beautiful! I love the color, great find!
