Acessories to be complete : the shoes

Everyone knows how much important shoes are to complete an outfit.Buying a pair to match with my dress would have been extremely expensive and with two kids I can't afford it.Anyway , for the challenge I add to make it not buying a pair.

Slippers made of silk were popular and my inspiration have many pair of it.To make mine I start with a pair of random slipper from WalMart at 10$.It was important to find a pair made of soft fabric as I intend to sew over it.

My way to done thing.I used cheap lining to draft the shape of the shoe having in mind I will sew the futur silk fabric over it.I shape the top and two sides.There will be a seam on the back and those on the side will be hide by the top.I also plan to make something embroided on the top.They are not done yet because I will use all the leftover silk from the lavender under dress.It's not 100% historically accurate but it will have the look and are made at a very low cost.
