diy #2

men's ties are one of the cheapest things you can pick up in thrift & vintage stores and their materials & colors are usually great (leave the polyester 70's ones and go for the silk stripes). take them apart gently using a seam ripper and steam flat. then comes the fun part: patch them together in a coordinating color palette. i used some quilt interlining for this stole & backed the whole thing with a plain stripe.
