Make a Liberty tie

Thank you very much for writing in with your favorite fabric resources, and thanks also for the comments on tie patterns. 

David Page Coffin now has a pdf available of his instructions for making ties, available for $8.00 from his blog page. This is a great investment - you definitely want to get this if you have any interest in making ties. One-half yard makes two ties, so you can make Liberty ties in silk or cotton for about $12 each (plus, alas, shipping).

I haven't read all of the tie-making guide yet, but it includes crystal clear, hand-drawn illustrations and guidance for selecting the most suitable fabrics. The guide also offers links for websites that offer silk fabric for ties.
