The shoes are just as important as the dress right? Right.

This pair was extra special because they belong to one of our team members, Kate who wore them to her wedding last week. Kate had a specific design in mind and we were all so happy with how they turned out.

I love how these turned out and it's safe to say that Kate looked stunning in her handmade wedding dress and shoes. Here's what she had to say about them:

'I wore the shoes for the whole day and they were so comfy. They went so well with my dress and I love them!"

Here’s a little run through of how I made the shoes…

Step 1 - Firstly, I made the straps and added a neat stitch along the folded edge. I used our beige faux leather for the lining to give a subtle contrast to the ivory. 

Step 2 - I then cut the insoles and smoothed the edges using our sandpaper files before covering them with the same leather as the straps.


Step 3 - Then, I lasted the uppers and ankle straps to the insoles.

Step 4 - After that, I made the sole from our 2mm beige resin.


Step 5 - I then attached our gorgeous stiletto heel and firmly attached the sole.

Step 6 - Finally, I made the sock lining with a beautiful stitch detail to elevate the shoe. 

Estimated time to make = 6 hours
