Nice review of an unusual pattern for an item I think is rarely sewn at home. Looks as though it should be quite possible.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I've been looking for something to sew for my SO and this sounds wonderful. I can't wait to make it myself. Have you used any of their other patterns?

I've been searching for the tie interfacing for this pattern for some time, and found it last night at I hope to make this soon.

Great holiday gift idea: Non-boring ties for non-boring guys:). Thanks for the idea.

I've made the Baby Sling. Simple, useful, personalizable. Made his and hers for my husband's daughter's first baby. Denim worked great, and I put their initials on the shoulder of each sling.

Debbie - on the crepe de chin one, did you use the armo rite interfacing? I'm thinking that might keep mine from stretching further (I secured it in a couple of spots, but did not use any fusible interfacing on the charmeuse). I agree that this would be a good pattern for a print that needed showing off; it does seem to hang nicely.

I havenít seen this pattern, but I canít resist pointing out that the whole point of a 7-fold tie is that it doesnít need a separate interfacing; thatís what the extra folds of tie fabric are there for. Tie interfacing was introduced as a way of replacing the 7-fold method with something cheaper: not so much tie fabric needed. So, I suggest trying this pattern without the interfacing!

Ah, I didn't know that! It's true that the ties are rather stiff, but I had attributed that to the cotton. I'll have to try it without interfacing--a bonus is that Armo-Rite is kind of expensive, so if I don't need it...! Thanks!
