Every girl needs...
I had the hat, the holster, the gun, the vest, and the fringed skirt. I was sure I had boots, too. But looking at the old photo below, I guess I was wrong. I remember my boots. They must have come along later.
I remember the day they had to cut one boot off my foot. I was at Jody Gompertz' house swinging on a huge swing that went out over a precipice. For some inexplicable reason I let go and fell into the canyon. Jody’s father was a doctor and when they carried me up to the house he had to cut the boot down one side to get it off my swollen foot.
These boots are so much easier to make than the high heel shoes (and they are more comfortable). I posted this free pattern, called Baby Boots, on my patterns site back in 2000.
