Tutorial — How To Tie a Single-Faced Back Bowtie
Hold a tie in each hand, printed side face up.
Cross the ties, printed side up, left over right.
Fold the left tie-end under the right tie-end and transfer to your right hand. The left tie should now be pointing toward the top right, with the unprinted side showing.
Fold the tie in your left hand to create a loop.
Arrange the loop, with the tail end outward, parallel to the waistband. Cross the opposite tie over the top of the loop.
Pull the free tie over the loop to create the center of the bow.
Twist the free tie so the unprinted side of the tie shows.
Push the free tie under the other loop and through to create the second loop with the printed side of the tie facing out.
Pull the second loop through until it is balanced to the right side loop.
Pull both loops to tighten.
Adjust loop length.
Fluff loops and straighten ties.
Your beautiful bow is complete!
Ask a friend to help you tie your perfect bow. Unbutton one side to access the underside of the bow, and use a safety pin to secure it. Then use the buttons when you put on your skirt and you’ll have a perfect bow every time!
