Chick Chic Lace Tie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My model didn’t experience the 80’s. She definitely didn’t experience the 20’s, but that hasn’t stopped her from loving the fashion trends of those eras!
This take on the tie for chicks reminds me of both of those times. Feminine, meets Feminist in my latest quick creation. As part of me loves the latest run of girly lace and ruffles, the other side loved wearing ties and suit jackets. So, why not just put them together?

The Lace Tie: OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1. Head to either the back of the closet or your nearest thrift store. Get a couple of ties. Check to see if they have any bags of lace.

2. If you don’t luck-out with lace at a thrift shop, you only need about 3 feet of lace. You want enough lace to attach to the point plus half the length of the tie.

3. Before cutting the lace, pin it to the tie as a trial run.
Carefully tie the tie around your neck to see if it’s what you want.
Then cut any remaining lace. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

4. Simply sew the lace on with needle and thread. This is kindergarten level sewing. Just use a straight stitch.
