Every girl needs a pair of basic boots. They're the perfect wardrobe staple! These simple side-zip boots go together quickly enough for the confident beginner that you can make up several pairs in no time at all.
Featuring a simple side zipper for easy dressing, these boots can be dressed up or down, depending upon your mood and choice of trim. Make a pair in each of your favorite colors and you’ll be ready for whatever occasion arises. Wear them with jeans or dresses, mini skirts or even shorts. Pull your pant legs down over the top of the boots or tuck them in. Leggings are also great fun. Add funky socks or colorful boot wraps for even more style!
Also included with this PDF pattern download is a bonus tutorial teaching you how to make socks and tights from regular socks. A great use for those lonely single socks that have somehow lost their match and a fun and economical way to mix up your wardrobe!

good instructions....my boots came out fine the first time I tried them thanks
Easy-peasy pattern! Love it!!
Nice pattern, fits perfect my gotz precious day
These boots are easy to make and the instructions are awesome. These are perfect for your 18" doll. There is enough room to wear on the outside of pants and are easy to get on and off. Very stylish looking!
Pattern fits well--the boots are roomy enough for socks, but not too big and clumsy looking. They are easy to get on and off due to the side zipper. Another A+ pattern from Matilda's Closet!!
