Shoe Making 15.1.21 : Assistant Report 11

After sewing the side paneling on the uppers, I put reinforcement tape around the edges and leather reinforcement where the eyelets will be. I have done this in order to prevent the uppers from over-stretching. This is done before the lining is sewn onto the upper.

The wall for the good-year welting has been completed on the insole. On this shoe I will be stitching the welt around the entire insole, including the heel. Often times the channel for the welt does not pass the waist, instead nails are used to attach the welt.

Spotted in Piazza del Duomo. Only in Italy!

Beautiful winter lighting on Palazzo Pitti. No wonder Florence has produced so many great painters. The lighting is amazing!
