Definitely Intermediate Skill level. I like the finished product, but shoe front is tricky.
These shoes were a big hit with my granddaughter, she wants several more pairs to match other doll outfits. The pattern was easy to follow and assembly went smoothly
I found it hard to get the shoe to turn out right ait took several attempts before I finally got it right
