Wow - very "handy". Pun intended.
I really admire the hard work you´ve put into this. As a 3D app MD has it´s own unique way of building these non-standard clothing items.
Gloves are probably the hardest item of clothing there is to make with MD. Well done you!
I´ve just posted how I spent best part of 2 days making a simple neck tie! I wouldn´t dare tackle gloves!
They look great too. Wrinkles may appear with some hand animation? I do wish we could have a lower PD than 3 at times.
It´s just learning the best working method. Pins are great, as is the freeze and disable pattern. I´ve also found it "handy" (LOL) to export part of my garment and re-import it as an avatar to make it properly frozen. It also speeds things up a lot.
Making things over size and using shrink or just scaling with the sim running also helps.
To others out there with a tricky arrangement, CTRL & S ALL the time and never, never, never press rearrange pattern by mistake!
Custom shaped avatars are good too. You could perhaps have made an animated hand that grows - bit like inflating a balloon inside the patterns.
The ends are tricky, my socks have always looked a bit funny around the toes. Again a custom smooth avatar helps.
Not sure what else you could tackle after this? MD hair has often been discussed...
Thanks for sharing the patterns and details.
