UPDATE: The Tie Pattern has been revamped! I’ve fixed some issues with the pattern itself. I think you’ll find it goes together much more smoothly now. Enjoy!
I wanted to do something Father’s Day-ey for all my lovely readers this week and decided that we all needed a really fab men’s sewing pattern. Of course, there’s always the Car Visor CD Holder Tutorial, but I wanted something new. Something really fresh.
So I worked my fingers to the bone and ignored my family to bring you our first FREE PDF pattern download: The Best Men’s Tie Pattern! Ever wondered what our PDF patterns are like? This is your chance to have your very own free of charge!

This is my favorite shot:
I had planned on doing a photo shoot with Mr. Puking Pastilles this morning with him wearing my favorite dress shirt of his. Here, let’s imagine it together: it is black with very dark gray stripes (small stripes, very subtle). This tie is going to ROCK with that shirt. Our morning did not cooperate with us.
I think you’re going to LOVE this pattern! It makes a rather thick tie with a nice fat knot. However, because it is made from cotton and not silk, it is more bulky and doesn’t do well with double windsor knots. But it is guaranteed to please.
Try it and put your photos in our Puking Pastilles Flickr Pool! We draw winners on the last day of every month to receive fun prizes.
NOTE: In order to get this pattern out to you in time for Father’s Day, I haven’t sent this out to my pattern testers yet. There are a couple of tiny things that need tweaking, but I think you’ll find it still totally rocks.
