Wonderful shoe pattern

This is one of the best shoe patterns I've made for these 18" dolls. They fit extremely well and were relatively easy to make, but I especially love that the slip on style with the elastic back will be easy for little hands to manipulate on and off the doll without too much trouble. Often the shoes look adorable but are hard to put on and take off, or they're easy to put on and take off but don't look fantastic, but this pattern has both!

Disappointed

Great instructions and a super cute pattern BUT they don't fit at all. They were huge on my doll. I'm having to take the sling back out and sew the back on without it.

Pretty shoe but fit questionable

I made these for the Battat doll. Normally, an American Girl doll patterns will fit the Battat doll. I made these twice and enlarged the pattern the third time. I still could not get these shoes to fit.

Versatile Looks

Great instructions and many possibilities. I've made fabric ones covered in lace for a sophisticated look and a casual look with vinyl.
