Hello friends, this is Anshu from Blooms and Bugs. I’m sharing a sewing tutorial for princess gloves or fingerless gauntlets, because, well, what princess worth her tiara doesn’t have these posh gloves. These gloves make a great accessory with all those princess costumes and are also a great addition to her dress-up box after Halloween.
Best of all, this pattern is free and takes less than half an hour to make. So lets get started..shall we?
Princess Gloves in size ( 2T – 6T)
Stretch Velvet fabric – 10 inches
Time: 30 mins
Seam Allowance: 3/8 inches ( unless otherwise specified)
Pattern: Self drafted (only rectangles of two sizes are used in these gloves)
Cut out the following pattern pieces:
- 2 rectangles 11 inches x 7 inches (7 inches part should be on stretchable side).
- 2 rectangles 1.75 inches x 1 inch (1 inch part should be on the stretchable side).
Fill the bobbin with elastic thread and sew two 6 inch seams along the center of the width (7 inches part).
Sew two more seams along one side.
On the other end, line up the raw edges and sew two inches from one end (right sides together).
Line up the one inch side of the smaller piece so that the center of the 1 inch side falls on the seam line. Sew along the raw edges (right sides together).
Fold the main piece in half lengthwise (right sides together). Sew a seam starting with the smaller piece all the way to the bottom of the glove.
Stretch velvet is a knit fabric which means we don’t need to finish the edges. All we need to do now is snip all the stray thread and try them on over our little fashionista.
That was all about making fingerless gloves or gauntlets for your princess costumes. Visit me at Blooms and Bugs for more costume sewing tutorials or my etsy store for buying a custom-made costume for your little girl.
What is the first Halloween costume you remember wearing?
