Progress shot of glove

Progress shot of glove -  -
Well, after hours of messing up, starting over and getting frustrated, I finally started working again this morning and completed ONE of the two short gloves :( And by completed, I mean I still need to make the bullet holders and affix the grey strip properly...
So much work, but hopefully the fine attention I paid to detail will set this Lightning apart in a sea of other ones.

The gloves raise up off my arm just like hers, and the top is stitched very carefully to mimic hers; I did not just sew a strip over the glove base, I hemmed it into the rounded shape for both areas that needed top stitching. I matched the seams on the hands and thumb, but as you can see the thumb doesn't line up like hers does ;__; IF I feel anal enough to go back and buy more fabric (since I have just enough for the other glove, literally) then perhaps I'll remake it and fix the thumb and make the rounded areas on the top more pronounced...mayyybe.
This vinyl was HARD to sew into gloves. It is upholstery vinyl, NOT meant for the tiny curves of fingers and arms, but the color and texture was just too perfect...

Freaking A. Looks 100x's better than mine. The fact that you got that material to behave is amazing.

Aww, are you kidding? I'm sure yours look really good, lol I've seen your boots!!! I actually remade this, aka it got destroyed. Wasn't accurate enough So I've put it on hold because I got sick of remaking them like 50 million times. So far I have both finger parts, though only one has the thumb added...I started one of the long things but need to finish it. Oh well, I figure I did the hardest parts first, so when I finish them it'll be easy peasy!

I saw your other progress pics and I have to say well done! I am impressed with your attention to detail.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate people saying that because I try so hard to get every little thing just right ;-; Lol these gloves all together have taken me 2 days to figure out and 1 to sew, how sad is that!?
