What kind of pattern did you use?

such a professional looking job!

ties are hard to make cos they are on the bias plus any mistake will stare right in the face of whoever he is talking to!

well done!

I made one once by taking apart an old (horrible) one and copying the pieces. It was of a very similar material (dupion I think). I found that the tip was a problem - even after ironing, it insisted on sticking outwards. A bit like the blue one on the right of your picture, although that's probably just the lack of ironing, like you said Smiley Maybe my problem was too-thin interfacing as well.

That's exactly what I did.  I don't have any lying around, so I picked up a craptastic one for $3 on the street and took it apart in the fabric store to see how much I'd need.  I got home and drafted a pattern from that.  The original was done in 3 pieces and I did mine in 2... my brother says they're great and he's received several compliments on the off white one (don't know if he's worn the others)

The tips of the ties were definitely the most difficult because everything is on the bias and there's a weird folding issue at the back when you sew them together.  But overall, they're pretty easy and quick to make.
