I was playing with a simple pattern for this middle seam boot for my father. Once I was able to get most of the boots lasted I knew that I’d made a mistake with the geometry of the pattern. The angle of the upper part of the boot was skewed forward. (They’d be perfect for walking up a steep hill or leaning into a hurricane.)

I’ll have to adjust the pattern and recut. No biggie though, it didn’t take long. Thank God for working with cheap materials.

Tom,
You’re so helpful to me. I’m realizing how to speed up my practices and save so much $$.
When I get to Italy (ARS Arpel) I will be able to keep up with the instructions..
PS. Do you find, when working with felt for prototypes & patterns that the adjustments turn out just as correct as they would if using a leather and better than tag board? Thanks, Darla
