I'm not wild about them, but hey - finished object. And I'll wear them until I can get materials to try my hand at a from-scratch version.
Before: Yeah. Shouldn't have bought them. Hate having to look at things that people have to get out from cases for you... :p And I was discouraged - this was the ONLY pair of not-fuzzy-warm gloves the mall had to offer the other night.
Before and after.
After: Eh. The pink was too light and the whole effect is way too foofy for my taste. However. They'll do to drive 'round, at least until I can get some others made/bought. It's been in the mid-70s here. I do NOT want to run around in my fuzzy gloves - or in my leather driving gloves. Not. And I learned that fingerless gloves aren't the most complicated things in the world.
Construction notes: I took the lace gloves, cut the fingers off, cut the thumb off, cut the lace ruffle off, and lined the back with a square of scrap satin from stash. Translucent ribbon on top for finishing and 'round the wrist to fasten. Also from stash (and from the dollar store). Basically out the $12 I spent on the lace gloves, which was too much. :P But oh well. I did all the sewing by hand, it being too small/fussy a job to put through the sewing machine.
I think I'm going to get some plain tshirt knit and ornament it up a bit. These are rectangles with a thumb hole, I think I can handle that. ;)
Oh, and I'm going to try to be "fashionable" and make them a bit longer, since fingerless gloves are being worn mid-forearm at the moment.
