Ready to bring the artist out in you!
Here are a few ideas for using neckties in jackets: 1) Stabilize the ties (with my favorite fusible interfacing) and use them for crazy patch. Solid fabric sleeves will tone down the jacket. 2) Stabilize with 2 1/2" strips, cut, and alternate with a solid fabric. 3) Trim a solid jacket with flowers and leaves made from silk neckties. 4) Trim a neckline with a gathered or pleated necktie (see March 25). 5) Make piping with a necktie and add to a bound edge.
