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).
