PostSubject: Help Needed With Goth Armsleeves!   Sun Aug 03, 2008 10:01 am

I own a pair of fishnet tights that are getting a bit ripped/torn now from over wearing them. I wanted to make them into armsleeves, how do I go about making them?

I wanted them fingerless but how do I make them fit around my top arm? Do I need to put an extra piece on or something?

Please advise!

The simplest way would of course be to just do the ol' cut-out crotch, snip off the foot area...and presto, armsleeves. They should fit nicely around the top of your arm, because it's the same area where your thighs used to go....

But I think I'm missing something here! Are you looking for a different sort of method...?

Well my thighs arnt the same size of my arms,lmao. Not that fat.
My arms are dead small so I wanted something that is going to fit and wont roll down my arm.
I where to cut etc. it was more of is it possible to tighten the armsleeve to fit my arm better.

If that makes sense!

^Oh, I know you aren't! Sorry! Very Happy

How about... taking some lace or ribbon, and weaving it through the top section...and tightening it a la corset style.

Take some inch wide elastic and some inch wide hemming tape and place one on top of the other.
Put some tinfoil inside the glove at the top and place the elastic and hemming where you want it.

Place a towel over the top and iron.
