Description

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:

Black
Scarlet
Medium Blue
Sky Blue
Pale Pink
Gold
Cream
Grass Green
Natural
White *new*

And in Printed Cotton:
Pink and Blue Buds
Blue Ground Floral
Red Small Flowers
Red Striped Flowers
Small Multi Floral
Blue Painted Floral
Navy Flocked
Blue with Navy Flowers
Tan Diamonds

Blue Ticking Stripe
Small Red Check
Small Blue Double Check
Large Red Check
Large Blue Check

Natural Linen Stripe
Pink Linen Stripe

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!

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!
