I'm slipper-curious

Have you made pocketbook slippers, by any chance? Do they work for long feet (say, 10.5 inches/ladies' size 9.5-ish)? Or would they be too tight? Thanks in advance.

i made them and they seemed like they get stretchier and stretchier so it might be OK. but since someone has posted modifications maybe that's a better idea. ;)

I am a size 7 and the pocketbook slippers are largish for me. I love how cute they are though. I made several pairs, they are so quick to make.

I've made them multiple times! I wear a women's 9 and they fit me fine. I'm sure they would fit you too. They are terribly stretchy, and you can always futz with gauge.

They really stretch nicely - I have size 10 feet and I wear them when I go to my son's house (no shoes allowed). I am trying to downsize for my dgd - haven't done it yet though.

I've knit the Pocketbook Slippers & they fit well -- I wear size 9.5 - 10 shoe.
