I've been looking at knitting/crochet patterns to decide what gloves to make for my potential proper lady costume since I am in love with knitting and crochet at the moment. I also don't really like leather gloves because they're either too big for me or snug and sort of sweaty.
Here are the one's I like from ravelry. I guess fingerless is okay because they were back then and earlier (I saw some lace ones when I was watching Emma last week). I don't know how period these are and most of them I know clearly aren't but still are cute IMO:
Option seven (would be finished shorter than shown)
They'll be in white, black, pearl gray, or a light brown. I've never made gloves so this should be a challenge!
