A couple more

I'm on a bow tie rampage.  Two more have joined the flock.

 Orange with swirls!  Definitely one for my youngest son!

Mottled charcoal gray.  Kind of classy!

New bow ties

A couple more bow ties have joined the stash.

 A dark slightly metallic brocade.

And purple crushed velvet.  Because everyone needs a purple velvet bow tie.  Right?

Burgundy shantung.

A few new offerings

I have been absent too long!  Gardening and home renovations have kept me out of the sewing room over the summer.  But I've been busy recently.
 Above, my son models his brown wool frock coat I recently finished.
 A vest for my future son-in-law (I'm so not used to that phrase!)  It needed many modifications to my usual pattern since he is 6' 6" tall.
And my first bow tie.  I had to order the hardware since no one around here carries it.

I;m hoping to be posting here with more regularity but we'll see....
