It Takes a Worried Man

Distortion is always a problem when you’re creating inlay into a curved piece of leather, and it still has to be stretched over the last. In other words, this boot is making me nervous and I won’t know if the vamp feather is correct until I sew it onto the boot tops, stitch the side seam, and put it on the last. Again in other words, until it’s far too late to easily fix it if it’s wrong.
