You speak the truth. However, you are old school. Trust me, I say that with the utmost respect. Frankly, I am jealous of the things that you can do. I have seen your work with shoes and other items. What you describe with this tie is not simple for someone who is not accustomed to deconstruction/reconstruction. Sometimes, it's easiest to cut your losses, learn from your mistake, and purchase another tie.^
Nay. It's reversible. Take it apart, just the front. Unfold it. Iron it flat from the inside. Fold it back together. The original roll reappears. Then sew it back up. (While it's undone, narrow or widen it, if you choose). Don't sew? Start. A tie's a good (and easy) place to throw down your marker.
