Pattern Construction – Derby I.

Let’s start to make some more difficult patterns – a derby this time.

What we have to know about a derby shoe?

– Casual and not a dress shoe, so a real gentleman would’t wear it at evening.

– relatively easy to find the lines – as this is the school-example for the pattern guidelines – but not easy to find the right proportions.

– it can open wide, so the one most used construction for comfort shoes.

– still holds the foot well, and can fit a wide range of foot.

After this let’s jump to the middle. I enclosed a gallery – the photos made in the classroom by on of my student, Mary – so I believe you can pretty much learn the steps (if you have any idea, what happens there). This time let’s just get until the mean form, then we continue next time with the pieces.
