Design Your Own Fully Hand Stitched Ladies Linen Fingerless Mitts With Printed Cotton Lined Points And Hand Embroidery 18th Century Colonial
Materials: linen, embroidery thread
Design Your Own Hand Stitched Historical 18th Century Linen and Printed Cotton Mitts. These fingerless long mittens were intended to keep ladies arms shaded from the sun in summer weather when the style of sleeve ended at the elbow. They are made of one of nine colors of high quality, medium weigh linen, and are not lined. The turn-back point is faced with Printed Cotton of your choice, which matches or coordinates with the hand-embroidered motif on the back of the hand. They are fingerless, a feature which allows for needlecrafts like knitting and hand sewing to be practiced even while being fashionable. They also have a fitted thumb. These mitts are completely hand sewn, and are beautifully finished.
When ordering, please specify the Primary Color (linen body) and the Secondary Color (cotton facing + embroidery). The colors available at this time in wool are:
And in Printed Cotton:
Pink and Blue Buds
Blue Ground Floral

The mitts are approximately 13" long from point to cuff, and are 10" wide at the bottom cuff. This is on the smallish side, and if you would prefer a roomier cut, please message me. Since these are made to order, I can absolutely adjust the sizing to suit you!
These stylish mitts are currently my favorite item in this shop! They are very elegant, and would match just about anything in your wardrobe; historical or modern!

Once again, Jessica customized my mitts and the results were perfect. And they even arrived early!
LOVE my new mitts! I tried making my own and I'm so glad I gave up and ordered from PennyRiver...she did a beautiful job and they came way faster than I thought they would. She has great stuff!
These are so perfect for summer! It was fun being able to customize them and I can’t wait to wear them! Everything I buy from this wonderful shop is just lovely...
I am absolutely delighted with the design, workmanship and quality of my mitts. They were beautifully presented. I am a working historic interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg and we have to meet certain standards for costuming. These mitts met and exceeded our standards in every way! Highly recommend Penny River!
