I couldn't wait to try this pattern,so I went ahead even though I didn't have a little girl to wear them at the time. Pleasantly surprised to find them a lot easier than I thought,and I'm sure after another couple of goes I'll be doing them from memory.(Well maybe not that soon,but you know what I mean) Although I didn't have the right sole thickness, I made these just using what I had at the time which was 2 layers of thinner eva foam.Can recommend this pattern for any level of sewist.
Looks harder than it is. Loved the way they went together and the granddaughters loved them.
I love these boots, more importantly my granddaughters (8&10)love them!!!
I finally got around to making these boots and they are adorable. The pattern is more complicated than some, but the picture instructions are very helpful. Because I used die cut soles from my Punch Place die, the boot upper was a little tight on the sole. Next time I will extend the back edge on the body and body side pieces by 3/16 inch each. Also next time I will sew the snaps on the boot body prior to assembling the boot - it was a little tetchy sewing on the lower ones with my fingers down inside the boot. Definitely making more pairs!!
I liked this pattern and found that it sewed up easily. My only problem with it was that I prefer clear, computer generated images that show things like wrong side/right side in better detail than do the photographs. That said, such an adorable pair of boots when done!
