Finish the Left, Start the Right

The left, as it is, finished.  A great learning project.  The pattern making is slowly improving.

Stitching down the sole.

Turning the upper.

Drying before finishing the upper.  Next will be attaching the outer sole and heel.

  1. Hi I would love to know how u figure out the pattern ? I’m trying to figure out a boat shoe pattern but I’ve never done this before I’m a little baffled? any tips hints?
    what thickness of leather did u use in these? and what did u use for the outer sole? sorry for all the questions 🙂
    thanks

    1. I’m still trying to learn about pattern making. I’m not good enough to give much advice there. Just winging it for now. What I have learned tells me to keep it tighter around the heel and instep than seems intuitive but add quite a bit at the toe. Maybe you could cut apart an old pair of shoes for a pattern?
