Make a Clip-On Bow Tie!

May 18, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments


It is Britex Fabrics mission to rescue the clip-on bow tie from fashion disgrace! Here is an easy-peasy tutorial on how to make a clip-on bow tie, using under ¼ of a yard of fabric. Britex now carries metal hardware clips for both adult's and child's clip-on bow ties online. The foppish clip-on bow tie is one of the quickest methods of dandifying and dignifying an otherwise dull outfit. They add swagger to every collared shirt, whether made of quirky cotton fabric, menswear suiting fabric, or more formal necktie silk. Anyone can sport a bow-tie; hard-boiled detectives, bookish academicians, girlish debutants, or the always fashionable Beau Brummels!
