I wanted to have a gift for a guy and thought a necktie would be classic. However, this guy doesn't really have a need for more ties and but could use a fancier clothing protector for 'nice' occasions.
I decided to make a Sunday dinner necktie bib.
I pieced it with a background 'shirt' fabric, a checked 'tie' fabric and bias tape binding. The knot in the tie is a separate piece as is the collar. The bottom of the tie is loose and under the point is a faux placket with a shirt button. I added small buttons to the collar points.
My model has a larger neck so it is not lying as smoothly as it will with the actual recipient.
I used a single bead and bead cap to make a faux tie tac.
I think this will be a hit!
