This PDF ebook follows on from my pattern drafting book and shows you the method I use to sew my gloves together. The gloves are hand sewn and this book takes you through each stage of construction.
I include photos of each step so you can see what its supposed to look like. The techniques for sewing the gloves together are the same for the left and right hand, so once you do one side and then you just have to repeat on the other.
We cover threads and needles, through to techniques to finish the gloves after stitching.
I always advise making a mock up to check for fit and adapt the pattern accordingly. I would also advise practicing your chosen stitch as well. You can use your off-cuts for this.
Depending on the size of the skin and your glove design you should be able to get one pair of gloves and have enough to make a mock up from the same skin. Keep the best areas of the leather for your proper gloves and use any areas of inferior quality for your mock up.
