The first three photos were a wonderful surprise when they appear in Creative Needle Magazine Dec. 2007! I love the blue and white gingham and the white collar is perfect for a little embroidery and trim.
I added tiny tucks to the yoke before cutting it out and then decided that a little bow tie would be a nice touch. I had not made a bow tie in about 25 years, but it didn't take long before it all came back!
I was recently talking to a sewing friend and she had recently made bow ties for all her little grandsons to wear to a special wedding!
