Lycra Glove Sewing Tutorial



Alright, I've been working my way through sewing my first Lycra bodysuit, also called a unitard. But I've been having to adapt various parts from a figure skating pattern.

The pattern included the body (obviously) and sleeves. But no legs, feet, or gloves. After hours of digging around online, I came to the conclusion that gloves were evil beings designed to cover one of the most complex parts of the human body.

So when light bulb went off in my head in a way to make these gloves, I decided to share it with everyone here! Now, I can't guarantee this'll work for everyone as this was actually my second, going on third, attempt at making these gloves. But each try gets better and I hope it at least gives others SOME ideas!

If you use this tutorial, please let me know! I want to see what you come up with! And please credit me if you link this anywhere (such as LJ communities,, ect.)

And feel free to ask me if you need clarification on anything! (or point out any spelling mistakes, I think I caught them all but you never know) Thank you!
