Title: Judy Garland's ruby slippers project in August, 2020
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 1st Aug, 2020 at 3:10am
A beautiful lady has placed an order for a pair of wearable hand-sewn ruby slippers in US women's size 8 so there's a lot of work ahead in August, 2020.

This perfect pair of hand-sewn bows has been made a bit bigger than the original bows so they are proportionate on the size 8 shoes. As always, we use our custom made high quality glass rectangular stones, rhinestones and bugle beads for our bows.

Our US women's size 8 shoes is finished and the soles are painted.

Our project in August 2020 has been temporarily paused. Work with this pair of ruby slippers will continue soon. In the meantime, please stay safe everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sequining is in progress on our US women's size 8 right shoe.

Every sequin is sewn by female hand, as were the original ruby slippers by the seamstresses in the MGM costume department in 1938.
