I've always done the simple 'scout moc kits' lately (latest being hard sole - kinda of like dockers). I'm wanting to tackle a Plains Hard Sole with the latigo sole & beaded brain-tanned upper <Cheyenne-Arapahoe-Lakota style>. Have the paper pattern that I did in class last week; just need to get the leather & sewing awl.
Center seam, pucker toe, etc. would not compliment my plains-style clothing. There are some Order of the Arrow ceremony teams nearby that do center seam mocs, as their costumes are Eastern Woodland, Piedmont, or pre-contact Powhatan.
