Tie Neck Blouse con't

I found a thrift store blouse to turn into a tie neck! I love the print, even if I can't decide what it is. It looks like griffins or flowers depending on which way you turn it. More importantly, it looks sharp with anything navy. And I wear a lot of navy.

For instructions on how to create a tie neck blouse, see my tutorial here

This one is slightly different from my first because....

1) I made the ties 3" wide instead of 1"

2) I stitched the collar under (same way I stitched the sleeves inside before cutting them off). Flip collar to the inside of the shirt and stitch 1/8" from the edge. Leave it, or trim and finish as you like.

3) I sewed the ties on top of the front yoke seam instead of the shoulder seam (see picture). If you want to make this kind of blouse, I really recommend this style. It placed the ties perfectly.

To create the v-neck effect, I just folded the top part of the placket under. I thought about trimming and stitching it down, but it stayed in place well. And I can always button it up for a different look!

My fall wardrobe may be all tie neck blouses. I'm in love!
