Lady Marmalade Corset Gloves ~ FREE PATTERN!

Sometimes the idea for a photo comes before the pattern. I adore photography and whats more I adore photos that tell a story.... maybe its the real reason I create pieces and patterns I intern "have" to shoot. Just an excuse I've created to play at these corset gloves. Impractical in nearly every way. They offer no protection from the elements and where in the world would I even have the occasion to slide them on? Hellllllllloooooooo February! What better style glove than a corset for the month of love?

The idea really came from a song we all seem to remember to words to even if we have no idea of their real meaning....... "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir? Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?" and the version sung here in this video that just get me smilin'..... and I thought who wouldn't love a lil Gitchi Gichi Ya Ya this Valentines Day? ;) 

So from my boudoir to yours....... 

much loveeeeeeeeee :)

Lady Marmalade Corset Gloves 

Number 5 crochet thread
Hook 1/2.75mm 
Needle to weave in ends
Contrasting color of Worsted Weight Yarn or 1/8 ribbon for laces

Row 1: 1 dc in 5th chain from the hook, chain 1, skip one stitch and double crochet in next st repeat across to last stitch. 1 dc in last st. Chain 3, turn

Row 2: double crochet in first open space, chain 1, double crochet again in the same space (V-St made). V-stitch in each chain 1 space all the way across. 1 dc in turning chain of previous row. Chain 3 and turn

REPEAT row 2 for 16 more rows until the final row.... instead of ending with a chain 3 .... end with a chain 4 and turn. (total 17 rows of V-St)

Next row is the other side of the lace up holes. it goes like this:
Double crochet in first ch 1 space of the V-stitch, ch 1. Double crochet in the next ch 1 space of the next V-st., ch 1 across to the end of the row. 1 Double crochet in the turning chain of the last st.

Fold gloves in half length wise and join together with a slip stitch at the wrist by inserting the hook through the starting chain of the first row. Chain 1, 2 sc in each Dc end space around. Join with slip stitch to first sc. Ch 1, sc in each sc around 2 more times for a total of three rows.

Chain 25 for the finger loop and join in stitch next to first stitch of chain (this makes the finger loop) sc around the finger loop for 2 rows. finish off weave in ends.

With the glove facing you, join thread on the left side in the first stitch at the very narrowest part of the open V(the part of the glove around your wrist, not upper arm) Ch 1 and 2 sc in each lace opening up the length of the glove, around the top and down the other lace opening. Fasten off weave in ends.

Use a long length of black yarn, or 1/8 inch ribbon to lace up your corset glove.

Make its mate, slide em on and have some fun :)

Come on over and join the fun at 


  1. love the glove, how do you put it on?

    1. you just slide them on like regular gloves minus the fingers :) Just slide your middle finger into the finger ring.....kinda like a long tube sock ..... only pretty lol :)

  2. LOVE THESE!! I am needing something like this for my granddaughter's Halloween costume. She will be 26 months come Halloween. Do you have any idea on how to make these to fit her? She has a twin brother that we have already bought the cutest indian outfit and elaborate headpiece, we are doing her older brother, who is only 12 months older than the twins, as a cowboy/sherriff. So keeping in that category, we are looking at ways to make her a can-can/saloon girl outfit. I think these would look wonderful! Thanks!!

    1. Sure :) they are just a multiple of 2 pattern ....... soooooo I think if you maybe only did about 7 inches long? and I would cut the number of rows for width by half (the lace ends up being very stretchy..... for the finger loop Id only go 12 or 15 st for her tiny hands......:)

    2. Thank you so much!! I'll go take a look at the pattern now.

  3. Very cool looking :-) Thanks for the pattern.
