Title: Judy Garland's ruby slippers project in January, 2018
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 17th Jan, 2018 at 3:13pm
We will be crafting another pair of ruby slippers in January because February will be a month working on other assignments with handmade shoes and heels. Our strengths goes beyond just making high quality ruby slippers.

The picture below is a pair of beautiful hand-sewn ruby slipper bows that we will be using on our next pair of ruby slippers.

The materials are the same as the original bows. We always strive for perfection when crafting our bows, neat-looking and firmly sewn bows of this quality is not found anywhere else.

Our wearable size 5B base shoes with wooden heels all handmade from scratch to match the "Witch's Shoes", which is considered the best pair of ruby slippers made for Judy Garland as Dorothy.

Judy Garland as Dorothy wore this exact size and shape in Munchkinland and close up shot scenes in The Wizard of Oz.

In order for us to craft a perfect pair of ruby slippers, first we need to craft a perfect pair of shoes and that's very important to us. Our shoes also contains the Hollywood golden embossed label inside the right shoe which gives our ruby slippers a very authentic and higher quality look.

"#7 Judy Garland" is written along the top of the lining on both shoe, the same as the original "Witch's Shoes".

The right shoe is being sequined as we head our way down to the heel.

Every sequin is sewn by hand and looks beautiful so far and so does Judy Garland, she was just perfect as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

The sequins overlap each other perfectly on the right shoe.

The bow will be sewn on top of the throat part of the shoe later.

The right shoe is finished with the bow now permanently attached on top.

Sequining on both sides of the shoe looks incredibly beautiful and perfect.

Thank you, "khop jai lai lai."

This pair is coming along nicely but the job is far from over because there is still a lot of sewing with the left shoe.


A feedback from a customer that I received recently:

"I just received my ruby slippers and I am truly overwhelmed! It's hard to believe that the slippers are even more exquisite and beautiful in person!!! The craftsmanship and skill you have is staggering! This is truly haute couture!"

We are now sequining the left shoe. Judy Garland as Dorothy has beautiful piercing eyes.

The expected completion date of this stunning pair of hand-sewn ruby slippers is around 5th of February.

We also have a lot of work to do with orders of handmade shoes and heels for some customers which will take all of February for us to craft, and then we need to craft a pair of ruby slippers reserved for a customer in March. Everything through us is made to the highest quality.

A world-class hand-made product. Excellent work. Years of craftsmanship show as the shoes appear to have a soul of their own. One would think
there would be a Public Exhibition of such masterpieces.
