Thank you for this great pattern for the Journey Girls! This was my very first time making doll shoes. The pictures and instructions were clear. One of the things I love about the finished shoes are the lining and cushioned insole. The ballet flats fit great, look cute, and are easy to take on and off. I'm looking forward to refining my technique and making more shoes with this pattern.
