Sewing the side seams

Sewing the side seams

After the boot tops are completed I sew the foot part (called the vamp) onto the boot fronts and the heel part (called the counter) onto the boot back. Then I’m ready to sew the side seams. The sideseams are stitched with the right sides together; then the boots are turned right-side-out.

  1. Lisa, what machine and guide do you use to sew side seams? I’ve been using an L Landis out soler for the past 25 years with mixed results. I recently heard of your school and quality teaching. Great!!! lets keep this cool tradition alive.
