 All right. I was inspired to finish my skirt with out my mom's help. Here it is...


I attempted butt darts because my booty is disproportionate to my little waist. It didn't work out as you can see from the picture below.



And finally this was an attempt at a button/zipper/waistband thing. It's not too bad, I'm just not a very good seamstress.

I love those skirts!!! I've been working on one
FOREVER and now I'm finally inspired to finish. Just a tip: I've been using large, thick  1970's ties (the kind that's so prevalent at thrift stores) As I was sewing them together, the skirt became heavier and heavier. I found that it helped a lot to open the backs of the ties with a seam ripper and remove the lining.  Then the open ends can be sewed back in place (hand sewing would probably work best).

You have inspired me to complete my tie collection and make the skirt. My problem is, I want to make a skirt made only with red ties, its proving harder than I thought to find the right ones.

Yet, I know it will be worth it in the end, as your pics have proven.

necktie skirts are really cute. my sister made one years ago and i watched while she constructed it to learn the tools of the reconstruct/crafting trade. she also started a dress with halter top out of the full length of ties. shortly after she made it, i saw the girl on the show "blossom" (remember that show?) was wearing one. hers was a flapper style and the ties were not fully sewn together so that they flapped around. i think she wore bike shorts underneath. anyhow, great work!!
