Shoe Making 09.11.14 : Assistant Report 5

Here is a new test prototype in leather and linen. After adjusting the old design for the boots I am working on, I decided I needed to make some changes to the pattern. The design was not working on the last that I have chosen to make the boots on.

Here you can see the old pattern on the left and the new pattern on the right. I kept some of the same lines for the new pattern, but also made some significant changes to take the last shape into account, simplifying the design.

For the new pattern I first made a test in felt. Once I saw that it seemed to be working, I then made a test in leather and linen.

This is an example of metal eyelets that I bought. I wanted to test the two different sizes as well as the new setting tools I have recently purchased.

Here is a typical Saturday at Mercato Sant Ambrogio. Monday through Saturday from 9am-2pm there is an outdoor/indoor market in Piazza San Ambrogio. There is fresh meat, cheese, fruit, vegetable, bread as well as many other delicious food items.
