My completed boot shoes
This is the first piece I’ve created since we lost our daughter Paige that is specifically about that loss. They are titled “I’ll Fly Away.”
I didn’t get to take them on the cruise because there was a patterning issue. I was able to fix it when I got back to the shop; it’s not invisible but they’re wearable now and as the old boot makers say, “No one will ever see it if you’re riding a black horse in a dark alley.” I don’t know if the error was caused by a mathematical error during geometric patterning or if the geometric patterning system I used simply isn’t designed to create patterns for lasts with higher heels. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to make more boot shoes!
