    Re: Tie-making

    what is a hand-slipper? Judging by the rest of the posts on this thread this phrase will give rise to further ribaldry!!

    No use asking me. I'm trying to work out how to makes ties at all - and now winter is coming shall be renewing my efforts.

    We'll join in helpfully if we see photos, Tigerlily.

    TieyourTie, are you seeking to employ specialists? Start a polytechnic course? Write a popular history of sweatshops servicing haute couteur? I'm sure someone will hit your post with a google-search in months or years and be exactly the person you're hoping to find, but it would be odd to find a one-in-a-million person on a one-in-a-thousand bulletin board.

    Re: Tie-making

    What exactly is the problem? Is the mock-up too limp? Too bulky? Did you cut a slight dart (^) into the very tip, prior to folding it over, to reduce possible bulk? Not a large dart, but just a nip. (Hint: Use FrayCheck to prevent raveling.)

    Let me clarify: The tie bottom is pointed, so it must be cut that way, and then one side folded over, and the other lapped onto the first. That way, it will keep it's point. However, I can envision that very point being slightly too bulky. Nipping a small ^ into the original point BEFORE folding will help reduce the bulkiness.

    Bella, the last post in this thread before yours was from August of 2006, so probably the issue has been resolved...or at least I'd hope so.

    I've never found relying on size to stiffen the interfacing is a good long-term solution, the tie always seems to lose its form fairly quickly unless you have a really firm linen (that's my preference) inside. Bookbinding has a similar challenge in that regard.

    If that's not it, maybe you could describe the problem in finer detail?

    Re: Tie-making

    That's a very general question. I'd count five major design approaches to tie-making, two of those involve a lining material that differs from the visible tie material and in both of those I'd call that inner material a liner. Where there's an inner lining which is a continuation of the visible tie material I'd call that a roll. That might be thought to represent the Western European school of tie making at least. Bow ties are indistinguishable other than in their proportion. Cravats and cummerbunds are a totally different topic.

    The words inner and outer apply to the finished tie, some designs start inside out and require inversion part way through construction. Whichever way it gets built the tie should obviously show only decorative stitching, if any, when it's being worn.

    there is an extremely soft interfacing you get specifically for the purpose you've described tigerliily but I've only ever found it in embroidery shops and not matieral stores.
