Circular Cut

Circular Cut is one of the simplest methods used to make or construct. A circle skirt is, as it sounds, just that — rather than cutting straight angles, you trace a circle, creating a soft fullnes Circular cut is also the basic pattern used to create ruffles, just like those that adorned traditional flamenco dresses.

Cone Heel

Cone Heel is the ice cream cone of a heel that scoops you up onto your toes. Triangular in shape, the heel starts wide at the sole and tapers narrower, sometimes to a point. They are wider, and perhaps more manageable, than a stiletto heel.
