Description

My friend wanted a pair of fabulous funky purple shoes to wear beneath her traditional ivory wedding gown.

Material Notes

Since she was wearing feathers in her hair, I decided to incorporate various feathers into the embellishment as well as Swarovski crystal findings for a little added bling. As for the base fabrics, I gathered and layered organza, crystal organza and crystal tulle. All were hand-sewn to the shoe.

      Thank you. She loved them! The shoes were dyed to match the bridesmaid dresses. It was a lot of fun creating these over-the-top embellishments.
