Cute as a cupcake in a coral bow tie.
This past summer we attended my cousin's wedding in which Eric, my daughter, and I were all in the wedding party. Since I was enlisted to make all the wedding accessories, I got so busy with that assignment that I totally neglected my son's outfit and realized at the very last minute that he has nothing formal to wear to the wedding! Eeeek! Luckily, he already had the two key pieces - dress shirt and nice shorts - in his closet and all I had to make was a cute bow tie to complete the outfit.
This bow tie was a breeze to sew! I made the velcro closure at the back extra long so that the size around the neck is adjustable. Simple, modern, and so adorable! I love how the colour pops and really transforms a basic white dress shirt and navy shorts into a formal outfit.
