Judy Garland's ruby slippers project in April, 2016

2016 has been a very busy year with making high quality ruby slippers and our work doesn't stop here.

You will see another exciting project in April involving an exact replica of the "Witch's Shoes" that Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio and director Steven Spielberg purchased for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The original ruby slippers are very expensive, but you can own a pair like that from us at a very affordable price.

To reserve Judy Garland's ruby slippers in April, please email us using the contact form on our website or drop us a message on Facebook.

We already have a pair of hand-sewn bows that we made recently. These are high quality and not easy to make because all the beads and stones are sewn and not glued. The rhinestones are vintage with rounded claw settings, unlike modern rhinestones with pointy claws. These are very hard to find and we are very fortunate to have them. The claw settings, the size and color of the stones matches the rhinestones on the original bows.

The bugles beads are also vintage, the only thing modern is the rectangular stones. These are custom-made high quality glass stones which match the originals so they are not available in stores. The large face cuts, "V" cuts on the side, pretty much everything is identical to the original rectangular stones.

We've applied glossy red paint on the soles of this pair of custom-made size 5B shoes. The shape of the soles is identical to the original ruby slippers.

We have a brand new, custom-made pair of shoes in Judy Garland's size 5B. The pretty shape of the shoes and long heels matches the "Witch's Shoes" ruby slippers.

The right insole contains a gold stamp that reads "Innes Shoe Co., Los Angeles, Pasadena, Hollywood". Both shoe reads "#7 Judy Garland". MGM made several pairs of ruby slippers for the movie, so they numbered each pair to avoid them getting mixed up, and to make it easy for the studio to find the pair of ruby slippers they want to use in a particular scene.

We are one of the "neatest" ruby slipper makers in the world and this pair will be no exception.

Sequining has started on the right shoe. We're motivated by high standards and neatness is our number one priority. This is top quality sewing by hand.

This magical pair of ruby slippers will be created to look like new, exactly in the same condition they were in 1938 when Judy Garland as Dorothy wore them on the Yellow Brick Road.

The early stages of sequining and how beautiful, neat and firm they are stitched, will set the tone for the entire process. This pair of ruby slippers should be finished in mid April, 2016.

The craftmanship is unbelievable as we continue sewing on the right shoe of Judy Garland's ruby slippers.

We started sequining for the April project a couple of days early because we've got other commitments in the middle of April, so we're expecting this pair to be finished by then.

Sequining on both sides of the right shoe looks impressive. This is what it's all about, creating the most beautiful pair of shoes worn by the most beautiful actress in movie history.

The bow looks a bit funny on the shoe because it's not attached permanently yet.

The right shoe of Judy Garland's ruby slippers is finished and it looks gorgeous. We're pretty sure many people wished they owned this pair of ruby slippers.

About 2,500 sequins are on the right shoe so that's a lot of sewing and it's never easy. There's still the same number of sequins to sew onto the left shoe so we have to be at our sharpest all the way through the project.

We are now sewing on the left shoe and the stitching is once again perfect. There's no gaps whatsoever, so no fabric is visible once the row has been sequined. Every sequin is sewn flat and firmly on both shoe as were the original ruby slippers.

You're looking at an exact replica by one of the top ruby slipper makers in the world, just beautiful sewing skills with soft hands.

The left side of the left shoe is almost covered with sequins.

The ruby slippers is looking very beautiful, just like the young lady who wore them in The Wizard of Oz.

An unbelievable pair of ruby slippers is finished.

The front of the ruby slippers like a person's face and the bows is like the eyes. They say first impressions count the most, and when people first look at the ruby slippers of this quality, there's a WOW factor and they know these are made by someone who is very skilled in art and fashion. Someone who takes beauty in the work very seriously.

If the sequining on ruby slippers looks so neat and very symmetrical, more often than not we made them. This pair of ruby slippers is beautiful and matches what the original ruby slippers once looked like as new in 1938-39.

Final photos of the ruby slippers will be posted soon.
