LOVE IT! Instructions were lengthy (which I need) and am grateful for the different size of sole as I have different dolls. Great ideas on how to decorate them as well.
My experience with the pattern has been ok. The directions are too wordy. They need to be more direct. It would also be helpful if some of illustrations were in black and white. It is too expensive to print them.
Hi Julie, I would suggest printing only the pattern pieces and then referring to a device such as a cell phone or a tablet to follow the instructions. We do have a lot of customers who do this to save paper and ink. You can also choose to print in black and white instead of color in the printing dialogue box before printing the pattern. :)
Absolutely the best tutorial, great tips, leaves you with a total understanding of shoe construction.
very pleased easy to use and the shoes are so cute
