Pattern Review: Vogue 8311 – Gloves

Threads magazine - 171 - Feb./Mar. 2014 Issue

Sewing tip: Sew slowly-most seams are sewn with a 1⁄8-inch seam allowance, making sewing accuracy very important.

Vogue 8311

This eight-piece glove collection with varying wrist lengths and cuff details is sure to add interest to any ensemble. All views are unlined, and interfacing is optional. Each pair requires several miniature pattern pieces. Additionally, pins must be kept to a minimum, so patience is needed to manipulate the fabric as you sew. Consider hand-sewing, which offers greater control. While all seams line up precisely, our tester recommends carefully transferring all match points to the fabric. Although making gloves can be time-consuming, our tester found it a great pattern for anyone who enjoys the process. This pattern is suited for fabrics with crosswise stretch, knits of all types, velour, tissue leathers, and lace. For a snug fit, use very stretchy fabrics. Note: If you have large hands or long fingers, you may have to adjust the size. The sample gloves are made of faux fur and stretch faux leather from Mood Designer Fabrics.

(Sized S-L for hands 7-9 in.)

Sewing Tip: Sew slowly-most seams are sewn with a 1⁄8-inch seam allowance, making sewing accuracy very important.
