Jim,

I had the same problem, unfortunately it's the way the gloves were designed, I usually tuck the jacket sleeves into the gloves using a blunted cocktail stick or toothpick, when that's done you can tie a thin white nylon or cotton sewing thread around the wrist of the gloves so they stay on the figure permanently. Another way is to tuck the gloves into the jacket wrist elastic via a cocktail stick, which is probably the best way. What you've done with yours in the photo looks pretty sound to me, cool.

looks fine the way you've done it, but I'd vote for the white thread solution Clivves mentioned.

I'd take some white thread and wrap and tie it around the gloves next to the rubber bands. Then when you have that done i'd carefully snip away the rubber bands

cheers cheers cheers

So much for my new year's resolution to stop trying to give advise... geek
