Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes Course - London Day 2 - August 2014

And so to day two of the Carréducker Pattern Making Course 2014.

Our Beautiful Sunny Classroom

This morning saw our students finish the linng pattern pieces for the court shoe they started yesterday.

The Lining Pieces Of The Court Shoe

As a side project, they then designed a slipper which is very similar to a court shoe. If there is time at the end, they will cut the pattern pieces.

A discussion about classic styles; shoe terminology; the parts of the shoe/pattern; top line treatments; seam treatments; and allowances.

The Oxford
The second style to be learned is the Oxford.

This began with taping up the last and drawing on the style.

Fiona's Sample Oxford

More tomorrow.

Until then, happy shoemaking!
