The editor for this article is looking at the instructions and will check for errors and issue a correction if needed. And, Julia is correct about the illustrations, we have our art team in some cases re draw them. If there is an issue with the instructions after we look at them we'll issue a correction. Thanks, CME Editorial Team

soling material
HI - Thank you for your comments. I wrote the article but I have not seen the printed version yet. Once I take a look I will clarify some of the questions you have about the instructions. I don't believe the illustrations I made are the ones in the magazine - but let me take a look and provide more explanation. You can obtain the soling material here:
poor instructions
I was thrilled when I received the latest issue and saw that I could make my own shoes. I make everything else, why not shoes? Alas, the instructions are wanting. Illustration C shows a seam allowance turned under, yet no mention is made of this. Illustration A shows stay stitching. Do we stay stitch? The photograph of the shoes shows a seam at the toe, again no mention. The citings of "sole" are ambiguous, especially in step E. Which sole? Pattern sole, insoles, or rubber soles? Also, the article states that rubber soling can be purchased at the author's Etsy page, but it is not there. Were I to redo this article, I would have checked the illustrations against the text and let someone with little sewing knowledge test drive the instructions.
