Jo's been busy working on her Mitsumi costume (earlier work here and here). For the second piece she chose what will probably be the most complicated thing to make - the boots. Instead of trying to draft our own boot pattern we used Butterick 5233. Jo has almost no experience working with commercial patterns - so all the cutting. . .
I ran out of velcro so one boot still doesn't have a closure - and we're going to add rubber soles to the bottom of them - but other than that they're done!
