For my sisters wedding I made my daughter a silk party dress. Then I got so inspired by this post from
Joanita
and visiting http://www.marywalesloomis.com/ that I decided I'd make some shoes to go with it!
They turned out real nice, only proved way too big, so as I had to do another pair, I thought I might as well do a
tutorial
on the way. Enjoy! Grin

I know it has been said... but gorgeous! Cheesy I am thinking about putting your spin on toddler's shoes to use for my older girls. The ballet flats are still all the rage at their school and it looks so boutique to have completely matching shoes! Smiley  The tutorial is awesome! Has it been updated since you discovered that they came out a lil too big? Is there a pattern in the works as stated? LOL Am I bugging you and jumping the gun?!?! Cheesy Grin Wink

Absolutely adorable! I usually make things for myself before I make them for others (partly because I love crafted things, and partly because I want to get my mess up's out of the way.) Would the pattern work for bigger feet?  Smiley

Wow!  I am in complete awe of your skills.  The stuff you find in stores isn't even close to being this cute or well crafted.  Bravo!  Grin

They look really professional, and I love how the flower is centred at the toe on both, it looks really good.

So many kinds of wonderful.  Gorgeous dress, fabulous shoes, excellent tutorial, and great links.

I sort of copied a dress she already had; it looks like a spaghetti-top, flaring out at the bottom, with five extremely thin pleats to embellish the neckline

that is so cute.  I have a woorn out leather coat with paint stains on it.  I wonder if it could be repurposed for that.  I am thinking ballet flats too.  my daughter has a hard time with shoes because her foot is so narrow.

that dress is also pretty something like that would also be nice for easter

Very sweet!  Nice fabric - was it a tropical location?  Has the wedding happened already?  I bet she was adorable! How did the shoes work out?

I watched a Threadbanger podcast where they made flip-flops using scissors, hot glue and a yoga mat - I wonder how yoga mat material would sew instead of leather?  Maybe it would need to be reinforced with some sort of fabric or backing first?  I'd love to use this idea with a more street-ready sole.
