Title: Judy Garland's ruby slippers project in November, 2020
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 3rd Nov, 2020 at 3:43pm
2020 is a very busy year for us. In November, we will be crafting a pair of US women's size 12 wearable hand-sewn ruby slippers.

This beautiful pair of hand-sewn bows is finished for this project.

Our bows contains custom made stones and beads that are the same size as the original materials on Judy Garland as Dorothy's screen worn ruby slippers.

The size of our bows, however, are more bigger than the original bows so they are compatible on our size 12 shoes, therefore extra rhinestones and bugle beads are sewn onto the silk fabric and leather base bows.

Our US women's size 12 shoes is almost finished. The woden heels and shoes is made from scratch.

Glossy red paint is applied to the shoe soles and the right insole contains a golden embossed label reading "Innes Shoe Co., Los Angeles, Pasadena, Hollywood."

Our cutomers' foot length is 11 inches, and the length of the insoles measures 11.5 inches or around 29cm for comfort on the toe area.

US women's size 12 shoes is finished. The 1930's shape matches the original ruby slippers. These are real shoes that can be worn.

Sequining is in progress on the right shoe in US women's size 12. The shoe is very big so there's more work than usual.

Sequining is finished on the right shoe in US women's size 12 and the bow is attached.

Judy Garland as Dorothy wore a size 5, so the work involved with crafting hand-sewn ruby slippers in size 12 takes double the time. It's very difficult and time-consuming but the right shoe looks beautiful.

The work has been completed with this beautiful pair of US women's size 12 wearable hand-sewn ruby slippers.

This is a big pair of ruby slippers and the leather is soft for comfort so the sides can look a bit bent, but take no notice of this because when the shoes is worn the lining will straighten around the feet.
