The Dalliance Glove e-pattern

In addition to my two new sewing patterns I'm excited to release this new PDF pattern...



There are so many reasons why I adore these gloves.  First of all the folds... I don't know what it is about fabric manipulation that I find so addicting, but folds in fabric gives me the same happiness feeling that chocolate does, but without the calories.  Secondly, it's a sewing pattern! I wanted to make a few fingerless gloves as Christmas presents, but I could not find any that weren't crochet or knit pdf patterns.  If I had the time or talent to knit that would be great, which brings me to my third reason - it's a quick pattern.  Lastly, this pattern works well with cotton stretch fabrics and a woven fabric with some stretch or loosely woven fabrics.  It's nice to have fabric options.  

The pattern also includes tips on sewing with cotton stretch fabrics on a home sewing machine. 


Here's a better shot of the folds...



The pattern is a PDF with instructions, illustrations and full size pattern pieces.  Because it's a PDF there are no shipping charges and it's emailed to you within 24 hours. 

The Dalliance Gloves sewing e-pattern is available at jamiechristina.com, phatfabric.com and Pretty Ditty (etsy shop).

Cheers,

Jamie

Made a quick trip to Blog World and thought I'd pay my good friend a visit. I love fingerless gloves, they are so practical and you found a way to make them extra pretty.

Those are utterly adorable! They remind me of spats.

Ooo, these are lovely! I agree with the above comment, they remind me of spats as well! But so much more wearable on your hands :-)

Definitely bookmarked for my ever growing list of 2011 projects!

Dearest sweet jamie, this pattern is the cutest! I don't know how to crochet or knit and so this is perfect for me! I also adore those cute little folds but it's hard to find cotton stretch fabrics and a woven fabric around here. Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

I've just discovered your pattern 10mn ago and ordered it in Etsy : I'm totally in love !
I know how to knit but it take me so much time that I was telling myself that I would like to do sewing gloves... and here come yours ! They're so much nicer that I would have done alone !
Thank you very very much for this pattern :)

What perfect timing- I've started a new job and it can get pretty cold so gloves are quite desirable, but I need my fingers free, and I find my fingerless gloves a bit fussy, so this pattern looks perfect as they look so clean and simple- and warm too!
