Fabric Bow Pattern

This skinny bow tie sewing pattern is inspired by the 1940s style vintage bow ties. The bow tie pattern comes with 2 different variations: a version with the hanging ties for women, and one without the ties for men. The skinny bowtie sewing pattern is super simple to make and perfect for beginners.

If you make this bow, we’d love to see it!  Tag it #dakotabowtie on instagram.
