I found a hot pink girl’s T-shirt on sale at Target and thought it would be lovely with some of my necktie fabrics! To make the skirt, I cut off the wide ends of the neckties, unstitched them, took off all the linings and interfacing, evened them out at the bottom, stitch them together, then stitched them onto the bottom of the T-shirt. I also made a mini fabric/button flower for a little a-la-mode. Here it is! (Click photo for larger view.) Oh, and here are a few other necktie projects to try! ♥
What a creative way to use neckties!
Thank you, Sarah! 🙂
love it! and the necktie onsies….I know a few little boys who would look super cute in those!
Thank you, Jennie! 🙂 I’m about to finish up my husband’s *donated* ties, but all my blogging friends say I can find more for pennies at a thrift store so I’ll be on the hunt soon! 🙂
Love the colour!
Thank you! I know a little girl who LOVES hot pink to give it to! 🙂

Thank you! It was fun to make! 🙂
Where do you find such gorgeous ties?
Fabulous colours in the skirt!
Thank you! They were my hubby’s that he was ready to part with . . . but now I need to go shop some Goodwill stores because I’ve used most of them up! 🙂
What a great idea – adding neckties to make a skirt at the bottom of a T-shirt! 🙂
Thank you! Necktie fabrics are just so pretty! 🙂
very nice idea – I have a roll of ties my friend gave me to make a purse with. I haven’t tried clothing yet. Now I gotta put this on my list – and my list keeps growing!!
Can’t wait to see what you make!!! 🙂
I am patiently waiting til I get the promised projects done, and then here I go, on the fun ones!
Wonderful way to recycle ties – they sure made a pretty dress!
Thank you! I just love tie fabrics! 🙂
