Product Description

Paperback, 39 pgs.  In 1855 an anonymous Lady published a small book of instructions for making shoes at home - "Every Lady her own Shoemaker or, A Complete Self-Instructor in The Art of Making Gaiters and Shoes". Her patterns are for shoes, for ankle-high gaiters with fabric uppers, leather soles, leather heels and toe-caps, for Congress gaiters with an elastic gore instead of a laced opening, and also for a man's slippers.  This facsimile copy includes 6 pull out diagrams.

  1. Happy Customer 5 Star Review

    The product arrived sooner then expected, was in good condition, and was all that I'd hoped it to be.


  2. Fantastic research tool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2014

    I was so glad to find this - a website recommended it, and I bought it to help me make my own side-laced 1840s boots. It's a fabulous resource for the historian as well as the maker (I'm both), and the fold out patterns are a huge help.
