Inspired by some of the talk in WAYWRN about doing your own alterations, I decided to try and make my own bow tie. This is the only bow tie I have ever had, so tying it was harder than making it. I think it came out pretty well for the first try. What do you think about the proportions? I think the wings need to be a bit longer.
