Step 1: What You Will Need:
3.Sewing Thread and Needle
Step 2: Pleat and Pin the Necktie
Step 3: Custom Fit It
Step 4: Sew, Iron and Sew Again
So now you’re ready to start sewing the tie!
Image1- Try to find a color thread that best matches the color or pattern of the tie. Because the tie becomes very thick after you pleat it, you’ll have to use a thicker thread than just your basic one.
Image2- Get on over to the sewing machine and start sewing!!! Now I should mention that you’ll only be able to sew the necktie with an industrial sewing machine, because of the thickness. I also use a size 18 needle, which is usually used for sewing jeans.
Image3- After you’ve completed the sewing, knot the threads at the two ends and cut any excess thread you have left.
Image4- Now you can iron-on the Velcro on the back of the tie. Just be sure to use a clean white cloth in between the necktie and the iron, just to keep the necktie clean in case the iron decides to leave any residue.
Image5- I love this one, because this is where the creativity begins! Now you can start “decorating” your tie with buttons, flowers, pearls, what have you! I decided to do this particular one with pearls.
Image6- YOU’RE DONE! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
