Sweetness! :D The gloves look pretty fitted. Any plans to give them a little more flare at the end?




i'm not sure i can flare these as they're vintage leather and i'm afraid of messing them up. they looked flared in the pictures, so i was a little upset when they came in & weren't.
any suggestions on how i can give them a little more width at the top? i'm not the best with sewing (by not the best i mean we're lucky if i can sew a straight line :p )

If they're actual leather, you can try stretching them out a little bit at the top. Find something that's wide enough and wedge the end of the glove over it and just leave it for a day or two. Depending on the leather it might stretch out a bit.

Hmmm, mine were really fitted when I got them, But they were also about 2" too long. I used the extra length and put godets in the side seams. If you don't have the extra length you could probably take them to a fabric store and see if you can match the fabric. I have a tutorial on RL about how I did mine. But you could always try a few of the other suggestions first! :)

Currently have a soft cover book rolled up in one glove, I'll give it a few days and see if it does anything for it.

The gloves are really soft, so I can't imagine they wouldn't stretch, but worst case is I do what you said and try to add some width with fabric. I might get lucky and find a good matching fabric at JoAnns, it at least close to matching and I'll do it on the insides so it's less visible

I don't have any pictures but mini-update;

went over and worked with DarmanProps on my belt over the weekend. Really the only thing left to do is the holsters and dyeing it so it should be done really soon :)

sorry for the lack of update, but i was busy getting married & whatnot ;)

i took a picture of the belts now that they're done. we did have to end up remaking one belt since it was too dark, but as you can see it's all good now. what's left is the holsters around her legs & the leatherwork will be done :)

Hit a snafu with my gloves & now i don't know what to do. Despite the books being in them for almost two months, and even stuffing more stuff in there to add pressure, they won't stretch. They did a smidge but not really enough. I went to Jo-anns and got a close fabric, but i'm not comfortable taking them apart to try and put an insert in there. i'm worried i'll mess them up beyond repair. so i'm stuck and floundering on what to do.

my blasters decided they hated the XTC3D we put on them, so we're trying to work with them some before we decide if i need to print new ones or if these are salvageable. fingers crossed they're workable.

i'm still pushing for this to be done for Celebration, but i'm not sure now   :(

My blasters had the same problem! I eventually got them smoothed with spot putty and a lot of filler primer.
