Sample 5- Boot Deconstruction, Part 2: Patternmaking the Original
The next part of this sample is making the pattern from the actual pieces of the boot. I will later use this pattern to make a basic boot block and incorporating a back zipper instead of a side zipper.
Basically, the entire process is rubber cementing the pieces down to oaktag, then adding seam allowances as needed.
