Yves St. Laurent, eat yer heart out!

Um, $800 for a pair of gloves? So not my style! I grabbed a pair of vintage gloves and some old zippers out of my notions drawer and commenced to sewing. I made a big slit up the back and sewed a hem, then sewed the zipper in. Pretty easy. My old Singer Featherweight sewed right through that thin leather with no problem! I used to hear all the time how hard zippers are and was always afraid to put them in. They're actually not that bad, if you can keep things straight. On the right is my version of $800 gloves, for approximately $5 and some time. (most of it to find 2 matching zippers, no easy feat)
