Judy Garland's Ruby Slippers
The most beautiful pair of shoes worn by the most beautiful actress in movie history.
Judy Garland's ruby slippers project in October, 2016
4th Oct, 2016 at 6:21pm
 
We are crafting a pair of ruby slippers in October, 2016.

This pair will be in size 5B, the actual size Judy Garland as Dorothy wore in The Wizard of Oz. Recently, we have been working hard with other sizes for some customers, so we're back to Judy Garland's size.

We plan to travel down to Pakse and Champassak in southern Laos next month so this will be the last pair of ruby slippers that we will make for a while. We will bring this pair of ruby slippers to southern Laos with us if they don't sell, however we are hoping a big Judy Garland fan will take this pair dedicated to her for a beautiful addition to their home.

We took some pictures of a pair of leather bows that we made. These are hand-sewn as were the original bows, so they are very high quality. The rectangular stones are the standout, custom-made from high quality glass with the exact face cuts and "V" cuts on the sides, 100% identical to the original stones.

This is a beautiful pair of Judy Garland's size 5B shoes. These 1930's style shoes are custom-made to look brand new so they are not available anywhere else except through us.

The shape of our shoes is 100% identical to "the Witch's Shoes", considered the best pair of ruby slippers Judy Garland as Dorothy wore in the movie. This pair was made more sexier than other screen-used pairs because the heel is more thin and longer, and the toe is pointy. They suit Judy Garland, after all she is the most beautiful actress in movie history.

The shoes is covered in high quality red silk fabric which is sewn onto the shoes. We painted the soles in glossy red, inside both shoe reads "#7 Judy Garland" with a black fountain pen, and inside the right shoe contains a heat stamped gold emboss label reading "Innes Shoe Co., Los Angeles, Pasadena, Hollywood". The golden glitter of the label is beautiful depending on the lighting. The best pairs of original ruby slippers contained a gold emboss label exactly like this!

We are also including a free extra pair of insoles with the gold emboss label on the right insole. The color is beige if you prefer darker insoles than the white insoles.

The shoes will be hand-sewn with up to 5,000 red metallic sequins as used on the original ruby slippers. They will be crafted to look brand new as if they are ready to bring out on the movie set for Judy Garland to wear.

This pair of ruby slippers will be made by one of the most experienced ruby slippers' craftsperson in the world. They can be worn or used for display. For information on how you can purchase this magical pair, please contact us.

We are sequining the right shoe. You can see how neat and beautiful the sequins overlap each other which is everything you've come to expect from one of the world's best hand-sewn ruby slipper makers.

As we continue crafting this exquisite pair of size 5B ruby slippers in dedication to Judy Garland, we should start seeing some interests soon. We plan to sell them for the right price, or they will make their journey to Wat Phu UNESCO World Heritage site in southern Laos.

This will be our final pair of ruby slippers for a while because we need a break, so reserve them while you can.

Both sides of the right shoe looks marvellous. Every sequin is sewn onto the shoe very tight so they don't fall off when Dorothy wears them on the movie set.

There's still a lot of work to do with the right shoe, it's hard work, it really is, especially when you're focusing on attention to detail with the sewing.

This pair of ruby slippers is still there for the taking at this point in time, to make them yours please contact us.

We have completed sequining the right shoe and it looks very nice. We have one more shoe to go before we enter our break from making ruby slippers.

Sequining on the left shoe is just as beautiful as the right shoe.

We still have a lot of work to do, and at this stage it's looking likely that this pair of ruby slippers is going to Wat Phu UNESCO World Heritage site, the ancient temple in southern Laos unless someone is prepared to say, "Yep, I'll take this pair please."

We are entering the home stretch with this project.

This will be our final pair of ruby slippers for a while so there is an opportunity for one lucky person to take them, otherwise they will go to Wat Phu in southern Laos which is very exciting.

We have finished our last pair of ruby slippers for 2016. It's tiring work so we're happy to take a break.

This pair will knock you off your feet, Judy Garland would be really impressed with the quality of this pair of ruby slippers. It remains to be seen whether they are taken by a fan, or they end up going to Wat Phu in southern Laos.

We were planning to take more photos of this beautiful pair of ruby slippers in the coming days but we are pleased to announce they have been snatched up by a private collector, so they are off to their new loving home.

This pair was crafted to perfection so there was always a chance they won't last long with us. That now officially cancels our plans of taking the ruby slippers to Wat Phu UNESCO World Heritage site, however there will more opportunities in the near future.

We will be taking time off from making ruby slippers because sewing thousands and thousands of sequins on a regular basis is hard work and puts a toll on your health.

We will reload again soon but in the meantime, we hope you have enjoyed viewing our work and hope to help you with a pair in the near future.
