- Too small (like for the arms of an emaciated 10-year-old small), no instructions for resizing. I added an inch to each side of the pattern (I wear women's medium/large for reference.) -Inadequate instructions, basically just looked at the pictures and made the gauntlets based on my own sewing experience. - Once I made a larger version of the pattern and adjusted some of the steps, I was happy with the finished results.

Made the short length gloves as the base for a pair of scifi space gauntlets, and everything went together really nicely. I have relatively large/fat hands (glove size 8), so I ended up drafting an additional gusset inserted down the outside of the pinky to the wrist.

Runs VERY small. Cut out fabric and sewed thumb before I realized that the reviews were right! Doesn't even wrap around my hand let alone my wrist and arm. Dissapointed.
