Does anyone know where I can find a tutorial on how to make long elegant gloves? Not knitted, but from fabric. Something like THIS.

thank you.  Grin

I've been meaning to make a pair for a while but I haven't got around to it so I don't know if this idea is going to work. The pair I looked at at the store had 2 pieces that looked just like the shape of your hands, and then for the finger part had little 1/2 inch pieces sandwiched inbetween to give room for the fingers to move. I planned on using a stretch satin because I figured the stretch would make for an easier fit.

But that being said I have no idea where to find a tute. I would just trace my hand/ arm, clean it up for the pattern, and then measure the distance between top and bottom of each finger and the length of each finger and make the pieces from there. Good luck, let me know how it goes.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I have this bookmarked, but I haven't tried it yet.  I'd love to see how it turns out. Smiley

 Cheesy thank you for sharing the tutorial. I've been craving some elegant long gloves lately and the way things are with trends here, you just can't find something that isn't trendy at the moment. My mom told me that making gloves is waaaay too difficult (though she says that to me about everything), but I decided to at least see a tutorial and figure out if I can do it. I'll definately try it.  Grin

I havnt tried making these yet (got them book marked to do as i need a pair for an outfit in October) but the pattern and instructions 'seem' easy and clear enough...


the site also has some very very good other pages on draftign and the like.

I'm making some at the moment where I just traced around my hand and for the arm bit I measured around my arm at 10cm intervals and made a pattern from that. Then I found the tutorial at the dollmaker website but figured I'd go with what I had started, but I think the dollmaker ones would end up more comfortable.
