In a few short weeks, my little sis is tying the knot. The better part of my family is standing up in the event, which means WEDDING CLOTHES!
Don't hate, my son is 3 and I have never put him in a suit. I mean, it would be adorable and all but Kee-ku is particular about his clothes and dressy stuff is a bit too fussy for his roll around the backyard in the dirt lovin' lifestyle. It doesn't mean we can't try though. ;) While he won't be wearing a full suit, he will surely charm the socks off of everybody with his little vest/tie combo.
The only problem . . . ? While the vest fits like a glove, the tie is . . . RIDICULOUSLY LONG. Like it needs to be 4-6" shorter than it currently is. If there had been a shorter tie option when I purchased it, I would have gotten it. I try to save headaches when possible. Unfortunately I'm stuck doing the alterations.
Therefore, I'm enlisting my super awesome aunt (and whomever reads this blog post) to give me their best tips and tricks on how to pull this whole thing off. I am a wee bit terrified to take it apart. As I look at it, it is not immediately obvious how it goes together. Here's how it's looking from all the angles so you can give me the special knowledge. ;)
|The Tie in Question from the Front|
|The Tie from the Back|
|The back of the "knot" with the clip mechanism|
|The Tie Tip - back side where it is stitched shut|
|The Tie Tip - back side where it is folded|
Alright. I release the solution to this problem into your hands. Smack the comments hard, everyone. ;)
