Free Pattern Friday - Gloves



Mid-Century Gloves






Anyone who grew up in the 1950's or 1960's probably has memories of all of the women wearing gloves on Sundays for Church, or in the evenings for pretty much any outing. My mother wore gloves all of the time. Gloves were glamour. Of course the length of the gloves mattered. This pattern is for short, or wrist length gloves. These would be considered Day or Casual Gloves.

  2. Time consuming but one of those projects that would be easy to carry with you and do when you are waiting. When I worked and had an hour to fill at lunch I loved these types of projects.

    1. We had hats and gloves that came out in the spring. I was daughter #3 so I always had a hand-me-down. I was not good to my gloves or my white Mary Janes for that matter. I was always climbing a tree in inappropriate attire...

  7. I bet these would be great in black nylon upcycled from old slips, especially if the original lace trim could be incorporated.
