Is there any way I can widen this pattern slightly? Its a bit snug in the middle...
Yes, you can. One option is to cut on the black instep vamp piece from toe to the center of the vamp and tape a few mm of paper inside. So you will have wider shoe. If you need to have super wide shoe, do this in small steps in a few places. But you will know the best where you need to put more material. I did use really wide wooden last for this, but we have different feets so it's impossible to be correct for everybody. You could see my shoe last http://www.bludor.com/blog/?p=3064on this link, just if you need more pictures.Just remember to resize the pattern in small steps on few points if you need a lot wider shoe.Hope it's helpful a little, it is hard to explain.
