Vintage Tie Jacket

Vintage Tie Jacket

Rae made this smart looking jacket for her mom using a collection of her Dad’s old ties.  The jacket is a basic Tabula Rasa Jacket in tweedy wool with the addition of traditional inseam pockets from the Band Variations and Pockets pattern.  A vintage tie replaces the regular kimono band; additional ties are handstitched over the side seam, around the cuffs, and on the jacket’s back.  We know that many of you have a stash of old ties hanging around, so here is one more idea for putting them to use.  You can see her mom wearing the jacket in our 3-generation photo.
