A sleeve-glove attachment assembly for hazardous environments such as surgery, as well as applications where a fluid impervious seal is desirable, such as water or snow activities, is provided to form a fluid impervious seal between a garment sleeve and an elastic glove. The sleeve glove attachment assembly comprising an elastic flap, cylindrical in shape, having a distal end and proximal end is attached near the center of the flap to the sleeve at mid-forearm. At least one of the proximal and distal ends comprising a raised geometric bead and frictional ridges on the outer surface eliminates bunching and channel formation between the glove cuff and sleeve. The glove cuff is placed over the geometric bead and frictional ridges of the distal end of the flap. A method of making the device, method of donning the assembly, and method of removal of the assembly are also provided.
