5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Re-Upholstered High Heels??? on: February 23, 2006 07:18:52 AM
Hi, I hope this is where this topic goes, but I have a question.  I saw a pair of great shoes in the March magazine of Lucky, they were a pair of peek-a-boo toes high heel shoes.  And they had this awesome african/tribal print on them.  I got to thinking is it possible to kind of re-upholster (?) with a type of fabric glue.  That will possible stick to leather or another type of fabric.  My idea is put the glue on the shoe then lay the fabric on the shoe then use maybe an exact-o knife to cut off the excess fabric.  Please tell me if this not remotely possbile.  Thanks in advance

What page are they on?  I couldnt find them, I would like to see what they look like

ok, ok just one more (can't you tell I just love this dress) does your version have the circles in the back? or just the front?

Hahaha..im so glad you like the dress...

I did everything...I made the dress from scratch..
 I bought the fabric i was going to use....some tan nylon[fabric like panty-hose] and I had some left over white fabric.


So I made EVERYTHING SEPERATE ...... the top blue part...and then the nylon piece and then the skirt.....


the top is just like a straight rectangle[but i had to put a couple darts on the boob section to cover the side so her boob doesnt hang out.]...that piece attaches to the nylon piece...i pinned everything inside out on her the we CARE FULLY took it off and I sewed it.... the bottom is just like a skirt...she gave me one of her favorite skirts that has a perfect length on her..and i just traced around it....

now the circles....
I tried to get close ups..but it just looks like a big blur....

i got a compas to make a perfect circle...then a small circle inside....just like a donut....
The way i did it....was a little complicated and there could of been an easier way if I knew of
fusible interfacing!!!!

after you cut out the circles, you can iron it on the the fusible interfacing to make it more stiff but NOT TOO stiff...because your going to be hand sewing on it.

I only did 5 circles in the front[one large in the 2 medium circles...and two smaller ones on the side]...nothing in the back but her skin blend really well with the nylon...so you couldnt tell ....there was something there...

I first drew lines on the circle with the compass to make sure I was making straight circles when I did the beading/sequins work......then one roll...i used silver seed beads..the next roll i did small silver sequins.,...the next roll i did pearl seed beads...then so on and so on...i used about 5 or 6 different kind of beads/sequin for each circle.....I think it took me maybe a couple hours to sew the dress up...but it took a few days to do the circles.......im such a perfectionist....that i wanted to make sure everything looked right...

I then sewed the dress together then I sewed the circles in last.....after all the fittings where done.

Especially if your trying to make yourself known for a special kind of item.....I would really take my time and make sure its as good as it gets...but then again...I know I can always do a better job...

hope i helped...if you have any more questions ask....i'd love to help.

The nylon piece is also

Thank you!!!   I may make this for New Years its between this dress and this black dress I saw Kelly Rowland in.  I have to get to the fabric store to see what fabric I can find and if I can find a nylon to blend with my skin.

not exactly sure but i think you could get it by using the pattern and making the crossover top, then making a bolero (shrug, caplet-not sure which one's which) and wearing it over......

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39100.0 make something kinda like this but with long sleeves and withought a bow.....might make it look sorta like oprah;s

You know I was thinking the same thing
