Have I mentioned I like accessories? I want to make ALL THE ACCESSORIES.
For my prysm.break collection, I wanted to try my hand at a new hand accessory. Ha.
I thought a little tough glovelette would be fun. I’m really into leather accents right now, so I thought this would be a perfect addition to my prysm.break collection.
It took me a bit longer to get the pattern correct on this accessory than others. My dressforms don’t have hands, so I couldn’t drape the pattern. Even if they did have hands, they wouldn’t move organically. I needed to try the glovelette on myself to get an idea of what the glovelette would be like on a REAL LIVE HUMAN hand. This meant I made lots of paper mockups and even more muslin mockups. I made several fully finished glovelettes, complete with leather and hardware, before I got the pattern to be everything I wanted it to be. Next challenge: finding fit models and grading the pattern up. With every success, there’s a new challenge waiting to get tackled.
I’m pretty excited about this accessory pattern for a few reasons. Mostly because it’s totally something I would wear: tough, unique, comfortable, leather. Into it.
My prysm.break collection drops into my online shop on FRIDAY! My store will be at www.audiohelkuik.com.
