Upcycling Vintage Neck Ties

While at the thrift store the other day,
I noticed a HUGE pile of vintage neck ties in amazing patterns.
I thought there had to be something that they could be used for, so of course, I searched Etsy.
Here is what I found:

This adorable TIE ME UP TIE ME DOWN Ultra Mini NECKTIE Skirt from Glamarita for $55.00
As I continued to browse her shop I notice she also makes gowns....including wedding gowns!

TIE THE KNOT Custom Wedding Dress in Gold

After I found Glamarita's shop, I was awestruck and none of the other upcycled tie ideas were worth posting about! So I'm ending this post.

I made a skirt like that in high school with brown and blue ties. It was all the rage among my girlfriends and the guys liked it too! I didn't mind the attention at all!

Wow I have to say I love that! I have always wanted one of those.

Two years ago I made a skirt out of neckties for my daughter to wear in her Sr. pics! It was just for one kind of funky outfit. Unfortunately, it's not too wear-able because ties are cut on the bias and it was stretchy and got a little distorted!
