Denim Tie Jacket

Denim Tie Jacket

Another fun Tabula Rasa Jacket with vintage ties!  This time Rae made the basic jacket in denim and used the bright and playful ties as the band, inserted into the side seams as flat piping, and to form decorative cuffs and a design on the back.  Rae inserted traditional inseam pockets and lined the jacket with a couple of colorful patterned silks and finished off with the labels from the backs of the ties. It’s a fun and casual version of the more business-like wool Vintage Tie Jacket.  Read more about sewing with ties in the blog post Old Ties – Warm Memories.

  1. Now that we are retired we have no need to hang onto 50 ties. Now I will incorporate these silk ties into many designs that I have for vacation wear/church/etc. Thank you for your design ideas…..

    1. We look forward to seeing what you make with your tie collection!
