Deconstructing A Gentleman’s Tie

I have never taken a vintage tie apart, and it is like opening a very old book.  A dear friend of mine who has many ties to spare, gave me a few of his old silk ones.  I have plans for them, in two separate projects ~ but unfortunately, first I must gut the old geezers.

Some of the finer points of discovery~ all really old handwork.

I’ve set aside 8 inches of the widest front section of the tie  for another project (upcoming), but from what is left, this is what I’m up to …

… and voila ! Silk hair ribbon !

Such old-fashioned vanity, girls and hair ribbons.

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
