I always love gitchy costumes, and I realized I had this suede-like feeling red fabric left over from my Little Red Riding costume.. and it's PERFECT! Only problem: it doesn't stretch, nd I'm worried about how to go about making the sleeves. I want fitted long sleeves, and I can't think of how to go about making them so I can fit my hand it them. I was thinking making buttons at the bottom, like how gloves are.. any other ideas?

You probably wouldn't need to do much. If you measure around your hand including your thumb thats the smallest you can make the sleeve and be able to get the hand in. Thats usually pretty tight already.

Failing that.... it might look cute with laceing up the sleeves. You could also leave a slit at the bottom. Pretty much anything would work... buttons, snaps... velcro.

Sounds like a cute idea for a costume!
