All Miche patterns are well designed and easy to use and understand. This one is no different. In fact the boot itself is super simple to sew and put together. My frustration is always the fabric as I limited here on availability. I "made" some boot fabric using heat transfer interfacing and two pieces of fabric. This worked wonderfully for the boots but the straps got a bit frayed by the time I finally got them on. I used an actual buckle as the black clips I had didn't work with the "look" I wanted. Next time I will take the middle hook out of the buckle and not bother making holes for it. My favorite 5 year old loved them and they fit her Journey Girl doll just fine. Journey Girl feet are the same length as American Girl feet but are just a bit narrower in the heel. Easy to adjust Pixie Pack soles by using the Journey Girl Janes sole pattern. I can't cut soles very well. One is always bigger than the other! That is why I bought the pre-cut soles. What a difference. All my shoes turn out great and they are so easy. Well worth the money just to reduce the frustration.
The end product is adorable and most of the project is simple and straight forward. The only really tricky part was wrapping the boot uppers around the soles, as a shoemaker would expect. Using vinyl makes this tricky! The buckle detail is what makes these so special. I recommend using a finished edge for the buckle anchor strap. Folded fold-over-elastic worked well on one pair I've made whereas the strap as described was a little bit messy on the other pair I've made. Darling product.
Super cute, fairly easy to put together. Love the finished product.
Good little pattern!
This is such a cute pattern...but I was a little disappointed because the uppers were a little too big for the soles and I ended up with a bit of a wrinkle. I am very experienced with sewing and have made numerous pairs of shoes and boots for AG dolls. Love your patterns!
