[TUTORIAL] How to Add a Sash/Bow Tie to a Button-up

Hey guys! You may have seen my other tutorial on how to enlarge a button-up and make it into a removable bow tie shirt. In this short tutorial, I will show you guys how to add a bow tie/sash to the collar of a shirt.

A few considerations before you begin:

-The collar on my button-up is a mandarin-style collar so this tutorial only explains how to add a sash to that type of collar.
-If you have a shirt with an actual fold over, pointed collar (like any normal button up), I would recommend just using my tutorial linked above to make a removeable sash.
-Here is a no-sew tutorial on how to make your collared shirt into a mandarin collar shirt. Attaching a sash will be a bit different than my method since this isn't a true mandarin collar.

Let's begin!

Let's take a look at your collar. Notice my fingers pointing at the area where we will take the seam ripper and open it up to insert the sash.
Opening the collar with the seam ripper....
The fabric on the right is the sash. As in my last tutorial, instead of sewing the 2 strips together to form a long strip for the removable sash, just sew each strip separately. Like making 2 sashes. Get it?

So the ends of my sash is a little too wide so I will cut and taper it off a little.
Notice the tapering I have cut at the top to help it slide into the collar opening.
Slide the sash into the opening until you cover up the tapered part so it looks straight.
Sew the opening close so the sash is now a permanent fixture of your shirt! Repeat this step for the other side of your collar!
Tada! Now you have an attached bow tie/sash on your button up!


Voila! You can wear this shirt so many ways! It's nice enough to wear to work at the office with a pencil skirt or dress slacks OR dress it down with jeans or shorts or even a cute skirt!

Thanks for checking out my tutorial! If you have any questions, just leave a comment!
