Make this tie top in less than an hour. Make it today; wear it tonight!
Apply the binding without stretching it so the triangle will lie flat.
Pin in the ditch parallel to the edge to hold it in place while you are sewing.

3. Repeat step 2 to bind the remaining two sides of the triangle.


Bind the other two sides of the triangle.

4. Fold 3/4 inch to the wrong side at the top edge. Topstitch 1/2 inch from the folded edge to form a casing.


Fold your top edge down 3/4 inch.

 


Adjust the width of the casing according to the width of the tie.

5. Attach a safety pin to one end of the tie. Feed the pin and tie through the casing, keeping an even amount of tie extending from each end of the casing.

6. Wear the top by tying the triangle ends around your waist in back and the tie around your neck.
