My gloves - Progress pics

    My gloves - Progress pics

    Well, I decided to get busy and sew up some gloves for myself.

    I used cotton parade gloves. For the white patches, I sewed to halves together for each patch, leaving one end open. Then stuffed with the appropriate amount of padding and sewed it shut. Then I hand sewed those to the gloves. Seemed a bit easier that way. My first time around, I sewed the white part and padding directly to the glove by hand. Took a long time and looked not so great.

    These are better. I welcome any comments. Thanks, Chris.

    They certainly give the "other" leading brand a run for the money! Anyone who even has that extraordinary patience level to do the tedious sewing on the glove project deserves to have them come out as nice as these -Beautiful work!

    They look great!!!!!!!Did you use a gray parade glove and a white parade to make the set or is the gray glove from something els. And if you could tell me were you got them.
    Thanks

    Go the extra mile and add a button-closure cuff to them. That is one thing I have yet to see anyone do for a truly accurate pair of gloves.

    Those really look super man! Excellent job! I used the same technique for my gloves, only I used leather ones instead! Big mistake! They turned out fair, but the leather is so hard to sew through, that it took me forever to get them done, (as you might expect.) Forgive my ignorance, but what are "Parade gloves," & where might I be able to get some. One other quick question, did you have to dye the gloves 1st, or did you find those in the right color right away, reason I ask is, the color seems really accurate for ESB. I'm hoping to find a pair of cotton gloves that I don't have to mess around w/ dye!

    What material did you use for the padding?

    Parade Gloves are used in Parades! No, really, those are cotton gloves like the white ones you see that the military use in ceremonies. You could look and use your search engine on your browser and look for "parade gloves". They come in different colors and not just white. Maybe someone in the forum could give a link to any glove place online. Hope this helps.

    Wow guys, thanks for all the great comments.

    I purchased the gloves from: http://www.paradestore.com/main_frame.asp?g=GLOVES

    They were the white cotton gloves with snap. I figured it was the closest thing to the real ones with the button.

    Then I used RIT Black Dye. (buy extra pairs so if you screw up the color and make it too dark first time around like me)

    It only took a very small amount of dye to get the color right. I think I put in about 1/2 teaspoon in around 1 gal of water.

    For the white, it is just some white cotton that kinda looks like linen. It was around $2.00 a yard. I used 1/4 inch batting, but I doubled it up to make it thicker.

    for the white part, I put the glove, layed the white fabric on top. Then I traced onto the white material to make my pattern.

    Sew the white together like pillows, then hand sew them onto the gloves. I stick a big marker or something into the finger to help with sewing them.

    I would say it took about 3 hrs (while watching TV) to do the one glove. Very time consuming, but at least you can watch TV while you do them.

    Oh also for the lines on the main padding, I just used a ruler and lightly marked the lines with a pencil.

    Hope this helps everyone out there. I don't think I will be making any more of these.

    When I do the next glove, I will take some in-progress pics so you can see how they come together.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Great work, Chrima! Definitely on the right track to film-accurate gloves.

    As far as the gloves on MoM and AoSW, I do believe the originals were most likely white and then dyed.
