The Rocky Mountain Slipper Boots are a slipper boot with a huge size range—from preemie to size 7 youth in one pattern, and women’s size 4 to men’s size 16 in another pattern (US shoe sizes). They have a variety of heights from ankle boot to knee height, with or without cuffs, and an optional zipper. The pull-on version must be made from stretch woven fabric, but the zippered version requires no stretch (except in the cuff). The fit is a bit relaxed, but not loose as long as recommended fabrics are used—there is approximately 1/2” ease, most of which should be filled up by the seam bulk on the inside and the plush lining fabric. Pattern pieces are provided in Regular, Wide, and Narrow foot widths, and detailed instructions are provided for adjusting the width at the ankle and calf, for a perfect fit every time!
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: Certain aspects of this pattern are more intermediate level, such as the enclosed seam sole option (reversible for the pull on boot!) and the size blending techniques for a customized fit. However, they are certainly doable for a confident beginner that does well following detailed instructions, and the boots can be made in the recipients shoe size without adjusting for ankle and calf measurements. The sizing is based on US shoe sizes and will fit similarly to store bought shoes and boots – though the calf and ankle may be a bit bigger in the larger adult sizes, as they were graded to include all shapes, versus store bought boots that usually only fit smaller calves and ankles.
The exposed seam sole option is definitely beginner level, and I suggest that beginners try this method first, before attempting the enclosed seam sole.
This pattern comes with LAYERS, so you can print only the sizes you need. It prints on both letter and A4 size paper, and can be assembled either by trimming the pages, or using the trimless guidelines to overlap the pages. There is also an A0 file included for copy shop printing.
