Stylish ’50s gloves: Finger-tip fashion from “Mr Fred” (fashion designer John Frederics)
Again we bring you fresh, exciting John Frederics accessories you can make for yourself. This time, they’re Mr Fred’s new costume gloves of fabric — each with that unmistakable couturier touch.
Equally smart in any number of fabrics and colors to blend or contrast with your outfit, the costume glove is a wonderfully practical new fashion idea. Adopt it for daytime or evening, formal or informal dress. Put your imagination to work, and make clever use of those scraps of tweed, jersey, velvet, ribbon, lace…
The crushed-wrist look in soft jersey (top right) is further highlighted by spiral piping. A perfect accompaniment to a special luncheon or dinner outfit.
The dressy shortie (lower right) of rich velvet, with jersey palm. For the Paris touch, a jeweled pin adds glitter between the double points of the satin cuff.
The wide cuff of this wool-flannel gauntlet (far right) flares from the elastic-shirred wrist and sports an unusual button-over flap for added attention.
Long and lacy, the sleeve glove (below) encloses the arm in an airy puff. As a sleeve, it can give dramatic emphasis to even the simplest evening dress.
All four styles shown here are included in one Woman’s Day pattern — plus the famous John Frederics label for you to stitch to the inner seam of your finished copy.
