DIY: How To Make A Bowtie

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect bowtie for your groomsmen, you probably already know how difficult it can be. Not only is it tough to find the right colour and pattern, they can also be quite pricy. So, why not make your own! Don’t worry, no sewing skills are needed here. All you need is some fabric, glue and 7 easy steps!

Supplies:
– fabric scissors
– glue gun & glue sticks
– pencil
– fabric cut 7″x5″ (thicker fabric works better)
– elastic ribbon
– sewing needle

Step 1

First, use a pencil to sketch a light 5″x7″ outline and cut out the piece of fabric. Don’t sweat it if it’s not perfect because the edges will be folded in later.

Step 5

Once you’ve folded the ends together halfway, flip it over to the other side (one with no seams) and fold it so the edges match up. Next, pinch the bottom of the fold while flipping the ends to the side. This will help you give the folded bow shape.

Step 6

Now that you have the bow, one of the last steps is the strap! First cut out a small piece of fabric slightly wider than your preferred size. Just like the bow, glue the two edges and fold them halfway to the middle.

Step 7

Next, take the strap and wrap it around the bow. Be sure that the strap is placed exactly at the centre to make sure both sides are even. Glue each sides of the strap to the back of the bow. After, take an elastic band and thread it through the back. Finally, cut the elastic band to your preferred size. For this step it’s easier to tie it around your neck to measure it. Make sure it’s not too tight!

Light grey suits have become increasingly popular for summer weddings. The biggest advantage with these coloured suits is that they pair well with any other colour or pattern. If you want to keep the look subdued, we find that it’s best paired with other shades of patterned grey, with a small touch of vibrance using a green boutonniere!

Suspenders
