Yeah. That’s tie silk from Guss Woolens. I might have promised to make one for someone. Why? Because I’m a *sucker*
For those who might be new to Miss Celie’s Pants. I made the fool mistake of making a veritable stack of seven-fold silk ties as a Christmas gift for my then boyfriend (the Cop) in 2008. We broke up less than a month later. I am now ok with the demise of the relationship. But, I am still pretty f-ing mad about those damn ties.
I warned the Vegan about the Boyfriend Sweater Curse. I told him what happened the last time I made ties for someone. He says he doesn’t believe in curses. He’s in no rush. But, he’d like a tie. I will of course drag this out as long as humanly possible.
The thing is, he’s super sweet. I will spare you many of the saccharine details. I will say that while I was working on my Butterick dress yesterday, he cleaned my kitchen. My Kitchen. I wanted to roll around and do dirty things on the floor like eat off it. I am just not thoughtful or useful like that. I can pretty much do two things for people. Either I cook for you or I sew for you.
So, yeah. It’s easier than a shirt. The fabric is beautiful. And, I my friends, am a sucker.
