I don’t normally sew accessories, but this contest inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.
As most of Modcloth’s collection is vintage inspired I thought the perfect accompaniment to their clothes would be a matching hat and gloves set – something to add an extra touch of elegance (and polka dotted playfulness) to a beautiful outfit.
I made the set as an early christmas present for myself out of black fleece and polka dot jersey (recycled from an old t-shirt). This is my first ever attempt at making gloves and they are completely hand sewn, which was a challenge I enjoyed. They are based on an original 1950s sewing pattern, with some adjustments and bows added by myself. I drafted the hat pattern from scratch to match the gloves, again a new experience for me – I’ve made a couple of fascinators before but never a full hat.
