J'ai remarqué que tu as fait une paire de chaussons d'essaie d'abord sur la même forme. C'était bien sensé, et j'admire ta patience pour mieux assurer une reussite.

I'm going to France in a couple months, so let me see if I can do this one:

I noticed that you made one pair of shoes (???) on the same last. That was (well advised???), and I admire your patience to better assure a success.

No the pair of shoes i made was on an other last. This is a new last and will make a new "slipper" (i don't know how to call it) or trying shoes?? for this last with this design. This is just the very beginning.

But i will keep posting step by step.

I think you're responding to my probably idiotic translation of the post I was quoting. I was just trying to test my French.

I really like the shoes!

How did you create the last, or did you buy a last that you knew fit you well?

I bought the last on ebay it is supposed to be my size, considering all the measurement they should fit perfectly but i need to make a trying shoes first to be sure. If not i will make some modifications.
