Tie Sew-Along Session 2---Laying and Cutting Out Your Tie
We are nearing the end of the Tie Sew-Along. Just one more session to go. In this, session 2 I'll cover why it's so hard for most people to sew a tie pattern and how my strategy of using an actual tie and deconstructing it and using it's tie filler is one of the easiest methods to use in creating a tie. One thing that I address in the video that I don't want to confuse anyone is which part of the tie to machine sew and which part to hand sew. The tie will only be sewn where the linings are added at both ends. Otherwise you'll be following your deconstructed tie's "roll lines" so you'll know how to fold the tie fabric in on itself before hand sewing down the middle. Check out this video for the clarification and details.
Now let's move on to laying out the tie pattern and cutting it out. Here you'll learn about the importance of cutting your tie out on the bias among other important details.
Ok, now we're ready to move on to our last session which is sewing.....
