This week, I've had the fortune to spend a lot more time on making those bespoke high heels for Niina. And now it's time to continue the venture:
|First up: a lot of skiving.|
|A closeup on the reason of skiving. Usually a skiving thread is hidden inside. This keeps the folding strong and stretchless (is that a word? :). This is from the collar.|
|After folding, I added an reinforcing cloth for added stiffness.|
|The sewing came out pretty nice. I used size 90/14 needle and size 60/3 thread. The stitch is about 1,1mm long.|
|A close up on the lining. I was pretty pleased with these :)|
|The linings upside down and right way down.|
|Left shoe upper almost done.|
|A peek at the backside.|
|The boot had to be handled forcefully to get some close-to-decent results.|
|I didn't find a size 60 thread with a proper color, so I reluctantly used size 40.|
I could do better with the sewing, too.
|The collar down. It's ok.|
There's a patent leather detail on the top.
|Just waiting for lasting!|
