This pattern (along with most of my earlier work) was retired in the summer of 2022. However, it may be available for a few days once or twice a year. Read on for details!

In the summer of 2022, I realized that maintaining a back catalog of hundreds of patterns was kind of overwhelming. I couldn’t do it and still release new things. So I took my old patterns down so I could keep doing new work.

Since then, a handful of my favorites have come back, and lovely new things have come out. But the vast majority of the old patterns are retired and will no longer be generally available.

However, enough folks have asked about some old favorites that I’m planning to make many of the retired patterns available for a few days once or twice a year (most likely in late spring and then again in the fall around Thanksgiving).

Be careful always that the details of your dress are perfectly finished in every point. The small articles of a wardrobe require constant care to keep in perfect order, yet they will wofully revenge themselves if neglected. Let the collar, handkerchief, boots, gloves, and belts be always whole, neat, and adapted to the dress.

I’m not going to manage “constant care” for all my accessories. And if my handkerchiefs want to plot revenge as a result of my neglect? Well, I think I’m up for the challenge. But these cuffs might just be cute enough to warrant a bit of extra attention. They are worked flat and buttoned around your wrist. You can make them short and wear them as cuffs or make them long, leave a few buttons unbuttoned to create a thumb hole, and wear them as fingerless mitts.
