Pinterest Inspired Necktie Trim on a Camisole

My favorite material to upcycle with is a handsome silk tie. Currently, my favorite technique is trimming a top with an alternative neckline; this is the second neckline I have trimmed with a neck tie.

I had wanted to do a craft from one of my Pinterest boards for a while, but needed one that requires minimal shopping. This re-fashion was my best fit because I have a small stash of ties left over from “the great tie skirt sewing project of 2009” (Shall I share pictures? You tell me.) and a camisole that I don’t wear often as is. The only materials I bought were a spool of thread (because I ran out of my color mid-crafting) and a button embellishment. For me, this craft cost less than five dollars.

My previous necktie re-fashion is featured in my very first post ever on this blog, Necktie T-Shirt Re-Fashion.  This craft was inspired by a tutorial I followed at McKell’s Closet. My latest re-fashion is inspired by NECKTIE CAMISOLE Summer Flowers by erinsapparel and can also be found with more crafting ideas on my pin board, Create – Neckties.

The straps in back came out nicely. They are uneven widths, but that adds to the charm.
