The Rocky Mountain Slipper Boots are a slipper boot with a huge size range, FOR WOVEN FABRICS (check out the Canmore Cuddle Boots for knit fabrics). They have a variety of heights from ankle boot to knee height, with or without cuffs, and an optional zipper (note: your fabric must have 10-20% stretch when doing the pull-on version with no zipper). They are drafted for woven and stretch woven fabrics, and also work with low stretch knits (such as certain types of fleece and ponte). 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.
The exposed seam sole option is definitely beginner level, and I suggest that beginners try this method first, before attempting the enclosed seam sole.
Difficulty Level: Confident beginner
Recommended Fabric: Stretch woven fabric with 10-20% stretch (for pull on version). Low stretch knits such as fleece and ponte can also work. FOR ZIPPERED VERSION ONLY: Woven fabric with zero stretch such as flannel/denim/twill/corduroy/etc.
