Clear directions. The first pair I made came out a bit large — I think I was worried about making them too small, and overcompensated. It was quick and easy to make another pair, though. I would highly recommend this pattern for anyone wanting to try making doll shoes. I’ve already made 3 pairs, and will not hesitate to make more whenever I need something to match a new outfit!
Very easy to make! Use your imagination and embellish them any way you want, there is no limit!
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!
