1895 Excerpt: ... give you all that is necessary with the foregoing
to enable yon to make an ordinary boot or shoe, as a "welt,"
"pump," or "sew-round," ere I take you to a few of the higher
branches of the gentle craft. Pumps and Sew-rounds.--Boots and
shoes for very light wear, slippers, and ladies' morning, dressing,
evening, or Court shoes, are made by a process different from that

not have anything taken off, or it may be just rounded up a little.
In cither case, take off the last, and cut the other to it on a
board. If a sew-round, draw two lines right round, as D, D, D. The
