Welcome to Sew4cons!
I’m Jacqui and I’m starting up a small scale pattern company specifically aimed at Convention goers and reenactors. Two years ago I opened my own business selling costumes to history reenactors. As I’ve networked into different areas of history, I’ve been terribly disappointed at the availability of patterns in the different genres. With 20 years patterning experience, I think I can put a dent in that. Hopefully, I can develop this new venture into a reliable source for your costume pattern needs.
Last year, my son started Kindergarten at a school with a strict dress code. I dutifully ordered ties from the school uniform store and after a couple of months of school realized they were not working. The kids ties were too long. I remembered my great aunt making ties for my brother back in the seventies and her saying that they were easy to make. So, I started making ties for my son that were scaled to his size. After my first few, I realized I could take apart ties from the thrift store and recut them for him and we were on our way. He now has tons of adorable ties to wear and I get complements on them all the time. To that end I will post my tie patterns. They are in PDF format and will only cost a few dollars to get them printed at your local print shop on a wide format printer. No scaling up from a small picture needed!

I’m still working at these and editing them. Let me know when you find the errors and enjoy!
Please credit these patterns if posting elsewhere. I’m a stay at home mom making my living on sewing and need all the help I can get.
