Silky gloves can be a nice touch on a doll.  You can make hands as usual, extending them halfway up the arms so they look like gloves.  The trouble with silky fabric is that it tends to fray too much.  That makes it very difficult to turn little fingers.
When fabric is super slippery, it shifts around when sewing two pieces together.  Sewing tiny stitches around fingers is almost impossible, too.  Even if you manage to do it, turning the fingers is another major issue.  The slightest pressure will cause the fabric to come apart at the weave. Here's a way to overcome the dilemma, so you can use the slipperiest, silkiest fabric and make knockout gorgeous gloves.
