I am off to a new shoemaking project. This time it is a pair of short zipper boots. On the shaft I will be making a lacelike brogue pattern. Above is a sketch from my design process.
Læsten er tapet, mønsterdelene optegnet og skåret og her arbejder jeg med placering af hulmønsteret. For en mere detaljeret beskrivelse af udviklingen af et skomønster, kan du se dette tidligere indlæg.
The last has been taped, the pattern is drawn on and cut out. Here I am working on the placement of the hole pattern. For a more detailed description on the development of a shoe pattern, see this former post.
The pieces are placed on the hide and cut out. For these boots I have chosen a nice, heavy yet soft black cow leather with lots of grain structure and charming irregularities.
Lace broguing… a somewhat time consuming task, but I believe it will be worth my while.
