These are beautiful.  They are close enough to satisfy most anybody but the most demanding history buff.  And you'd hate period accurate heels as they are set much farther forward under the shoe and make walking a lot awkward until you get used to them. 

Did you check to see if the heels were nailed on or screwed on before you covered them?  Pull up the insole and peek at the beginning.  if you see screws it's no big deal to take the heels completely off, cover them and put them back on.  Just a little contact cement and replace the screws.  Makes dealing with those seams a lot easier.  I just wish boots were done the same way.

Thanks.  I definitely wanted comfort over accuracy.  Finding that perfect french heel is what took the longest. 
I knew I'd have to remove tip and was hoping that it wasn't nailed in.  This luckily was pegged in and easy to pry off with a little work.  After covering the heel area, I put a spot of epoxy in the peg holes and hammered them back in.
I was pretty pleased with myself on these beauties when I was done.  As a costumer and seamstress, I'm always looking to expand my horizons, shoes have become my new expansion lol.
