This one is my favorite. It has sleeves.  It took almost thirty ties to make, because I like my dresses loose and flowy. 
This was my first tie skirt.  I expected it to be a lot easier to make than a dress, but it was about the same.  I made it so I could use up some of the yellow, orange and puke green ties that were too bold to use in any of my other projects.  The color combination is so hideous that it looks like some kind of alternative anti-fasion statement, hence the compliments I receive every time I wear it in public. 
This was my very first tie project.  It was also my first attempt at working without a pattern on something that required any shaping.  It is a sleeveless tie dress, which is why I had to wear my cape when I wore it on my walk.

These are some of the ways I was able to turn vintage neckties into functional clothing.  My mother makes quilted necktie purses, but doesn't like using the striped ties.  Given bags of striped ties, I needed to come up with some kind of project idea.  This was the first thing that came to mind, since I love dresses and skirts so much.  (I don't think I own any pants.)
