Et voila, my finished embroidered spat/shoe combination.
White leather, multicoloured thread, hand-embroidered spat panels, navy blue waxed heels and soles: I love them I love them I really love them!
It's almost a sad thing to have finished them, I have been working on them for so long. They are inspired by my Spectrum Boots, which are visible on the left hand side there as my avatar.
It is also going to be difficult to resist wearing them before the exhibition, as soon as you crease the front they no longer look brand-spanking new, so I may have to put them out of sight until October.
Hope you like them too!
Listening to: Daryl Hall and John Oates - I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) 1983!! This was the first album I ever bought on vinyl, my Mum still has it at her place, my sister and I had many elaborate dances choreographed to this album and I stand by it to this day!
