For each Tie you need:
• 1 yard of OUTER fabric
• 1 of LINING fabric
• small amount of twill tape or bias tape (optional)

This pattern is aimed at 100% quilting cotton because it’s an easy fabric to work with, gives your tie an everyday look, and comes in so many cool prints.  But feel free to use beautiful silks, brocades, and whatever else catches your eye!

SKILL LEVEL – Beginner + All sewers!

My goal with this pattern was to keep the process as simple as possible, because other necktie patterns I’ve seen feel complicated…with extra steps, interfacing, and excessive hand sewing.  You’ll be amazed at how quickly these ties come together!  And how cool they look.

  1. 1) Penny

    LOVE the pattern, Dana. And because you made (pun? intended? haha) it, I know it will be an easy, fun pattern to make (and make and make and make!) Love that there are 3 sizes! Off to buy it now! You continue to rock!!!
    Have a great day.

  2. 2) Melissa

    Very handsome! I especially love the tie made with the Washi print- so playful and bright.

  3. 3) Brittany

    Such a fun pattern! I love it in your playful cottons, however, is there a site you would recommend for purchasing silk? I’d love to be able to make my husband a work-appropriate tie and, sadly, I don’t think his coworkers are ready for ‘eat it all’ ties just yet…

  4. 4) Lori

    Hi. I’ve made 2 ties already. Had my husband try them on. From my husband’s perspective it is difficult to tie and make a consistent knot. And a bit long in length. We noticed that it is wide on both ends and thinner in the middle. We compared it to a store bought skinny tie and it also gets thinner in the middle but stays thin. I was curious as to why your pattern is wide on both ends (back side is smaller than front side). Thanks!

  5. 5) Joyce

    Thank you for showing this, it helped me a lot! I love your video, I’m gonna watch more about sewing .

  6. 6) Danielle

    Do you have a tutorial or a pattern for a bowtie? My son and some of my nephews love wearing bowties and I would love to make them some cool ones!

    I love this pattern! One question, do I need an interlining to stiffen the tie when I’m using silky fabrics? I’m worried it may stretch and warp. Thanks for any advice you can give!

    • 8) Dana

      Awesome! I’m glad you’re having fun with it!
      Yes, you could use a medium weight cotton for the lining if you have a very lightweight exterior fabric.
      Or even just a stiffer quilting cotton would work.

    Need pattern how to make a Men’s Bow Tie

    Hi Dana,
    I need to make this tie for a 19.5″ neck size. Thinking I may need to add a few inches somewhere but not sure exactly where. Can you help? Thank you!

  11. 11) Donalda Brown

    I wish to purchase the skinny tie pattern…however I do not have PayPal…could I send you a money order?…
    If you will allow this…I will needed an address to send it to…
    Thanks for your time…Donalda

      You can purchase patterns with a credit card through my shop. You don’t need to have Paypal.

    Has anyone figured how many ties they can fit on the one yard? I assume several boys or teeen ties and one mans tie.

    • 14) Dana

      I haven’t measured that on a yard of fabric, but yes, you can probably get a few ties out of one yard, since the fabric is cut on the bias.

  13. 15) Karissa Garr

    This is a followup to a previous comment –
    Do you think I could get one men’s tie and one boy’s tie out of one yard of fabric? My son is almost 4, and I would love to make matching ties for him and his dad. Do I need to buy more than one yard of each fabric?

    • 16) Dana

      Yes, I think that would work! Since the pattern pieces are cut on the bias, you end up with unused fabric, so yes…if you’re cutting one or two more, I’m sure you can make it fit!
      Have fun sewing 🙂
