Who said espadrilles are only for the summer? The idea of using wool isn’t mine it is Chanel’s. I almost used reversed appliqué to create a similar logo effect.
Pattern: Espadrilles kit c/o the Makery Bath. I had the pleasure to take a knickers making class in Bath a few years ago. So glad they now offer workshops in London. I never made shoes before so don’t judge my blanket stitches too close. There is a very helpful video if you are thinking to try.
Alterations: Contrasting toe.
Fabric & Notions: Did I mention my fabric is Missoni? Not letting the wool scraps from my peacoat go to waste. It was sold out from Fabric Godmother but there is a similar one here. The pattern recommends using strong/topstitching thread.
At first people don’t notice that my pattern don’t match. I didn’t mean too… I love infusing personality on my designs and recently I have been inspired by art work of Sonia Delaunay. I had such a blast making my own shoes.
Do you use art as inspiration?
