I found this pattern very easy to follow with clear instructions. I made the shoes on my dolls feet as suggested for a tight fit, but I find they are a bit loose after removing the cling wrap from her feet. I am making them again without the cling wrap protection. I do love the look & am very happy with them.
I enjoyed doing these shoes. The pattern gives a perfect fit. The instructions and tips are thorough and very helpful to get much better results than I used to. Honestly it was worth buying this pattern. Many other pairs of shoes will follow.
