Classic



During the making of these I was a bit worried about how they would turn out, but now that they're finito I am pleased as punch!
They are rather classic 60s-esque, for some reason I am imagining them worn with a wasp-waist dress and some of those iconic cat-eye shaped spectacles. Don't think my sister will sport this style though.
I think she may be wanting another pair of these shoes in the floral patent leather I used for the Botanica Sneeks - now that's something to look forward to!

Lovely Emma! It is a miracle to me that someone could actually make shoes :o)

Indeed- absolutely classic. Perfect proportions and I'm totally with you on the wasp dress image (I've been watching Mad Men recently and loving the costumes). Would be fabulous in the Botanical patent floral.
