In these bow tie sewing instructions, we explain how to make an adjustable pre-tied bow tie. This means that the bow tie can be adjusted to most neck sizes once the bow tie is made.


It can be made by hand or by machine and is perfect for a beginner or for anyone just wanting to make a bow tie.


We try to make our instructions as clear as possible to everyone so each step includes written instructions followed by an illustration.


What is included:
1 x 2 Page A4 PDF instructions
1 x 2 Page US letter PDF instructions

  • 25 x 55cm of fabric (a fat quarter will make 2 bow ties)
