Hi! It's Vic!
So, I was looking for flat booties. My mom knew this. So, when she went to a friend's, and I don't know exactly how this came about, she bought a rarely-used pair of knee-high slouch boots for $5. Now, I don't have anything against slouch boots, but these made my legs look huge. They were made of that flimsy fake suede stuff that juniors slouch boots are normally made of, so I thought, "I can sew through this!"
I haven't worn them, because my hand stitching shows inside (I'll probably stitch some black lining in just far enough to hide everything), and the top is not smooth, but I think they're pretty good for my first shoe refashion!
My sister though I was crazy! lol
