Seven fold tie
« on: July 18, 2019, 07:30:47 AM »
I am keen to try making a seven fold necktie but I'm having trouble finding a pattern and don't have one that I can take apart to reverse engineer.  I would appreciate any advice members can give.

Seven-fold ties seem to me a total waste of silk, since most of it is folded inside in lieu of interlining.

However, that's not what you asked. There is a description and print-out pdf pattern here:

Hi Henry.  Thank you for your response.  I have tried to download the pattern from this site but, like other viewers, have been unsuccessful.  On reflection I can see the absolute sense of what you are saying and think I will mock up a tie using lining and interfacing.  If you have any tips they would be gratefully received.  Kind regards, Lorna
