Featured Design: Perfect Gent

dapperNothing screams gentlemanly charm like an elegant bow tie attached to your favorite shirt or jacket – which is why Perfect Gent is my featured design!

These fun clip-on bow ties are handmade using sweatshirt fabric scraps from my other creations – giving them a retro yet contemporary feel that makes them perfect for any occasion. With the classic shape and soft cotton material, it’s a great accessory for work or play, and make a great Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone in your life. Available in red or grey, you can scoop one up off the Pierogi Picnic Etsy page here.
