Ever since I saw the fabric covered shoes on Erdem’s S/S2010 runway I have been dying to make a pair for myself. It seemed like a difficult ordeal at first but the process was surprisingly easy, and so rewarding!
I chose one of my favorite Liberty of London peacock prints in cotton lawn that I had left over from a dress I made (I was going for a matchy-matchy look). I used a pair of plain black faux-leather wedges that I didn’t mind experimenting with. The wedge heel for me was a must— I think the covered heel is the most exciting part of the shoe’s silhouette. Next time I would love to try a floral-printed silk charmeuse like the Erdem wedges pictured above!
Shoes (I recommend a wedge), 1 yard of fabric, 1 yards self-adhesive fabric sheet, craft glue (make sure it’s suitable for fabric), scissors, pencil
