I can't say enough about this shoe pattern. I recommend it to everyone in any and all sizes. It is the best pattern for beginners to start on and for the advanced to use as a base for their own creative ideas. The directions are clear and the the fit is perfect, and I'm a real stickler about the shoes fitting properly. I have made this shoe many times in all the different sizes in a variety of ways. If you are afraid of making shoes, start with this pattern. There is even a video tutorial to help and the designer is available as well.
Just to be on the safe side, I made the first two pair of shoes using the beginners method. The pattern was very easy to follow and I am delighted with way the shoes turned out!
I really enjoyed this pattern. Directions were very easy to follow and helpful. I like the idea of the designer suggesting two ways to fold the toe of the shoe. The clipping worked better for me.
