Fun to make. Can out reasonable well, although I am all thumbs! The only thing I did different was to use a fusible web adhesive (EZ Steam II) to fuse the outer and inner fabrics. I did this by making a template that omitted the seam allowances, just before turning shoe upper right side out. It was difficult but I like the results.
Very detailed instructions. Shoes do fit snug so heel pull is helpful.
