Ever purchased a pair of shoes you’ve fallen in love with to find you don’t really have anything to wear them with when you get home? I would like to say this doesn’t really happen to me (I am not a shopaholic), however, if I am shopping in Italy, where shoes are so covetable, I am not immune! This has got to be one of the advantages of being able to sew. I loved these black and white flats. In fact I liked the shoe so much I bought it in plain black as well! (Not like me at all……) I have really enjoyed working with the basic shift shape of late, sometimes making it in an unbleached linen and using it as a blank canvas. What you can see in the top pics was inspired by Pompeian mosaics. I decided to work the twisting pattern in black and white on the linen. The other pics are details of a black shift with a central inset of white bias strips on tulle. To be worn with skinny jeans or white pants.
Hey, I would love to hear from you if you happen to know the name for this type of shoe.
When I am not busy sewing down at our island retreat, I love spending time in my organic edible garden or in the kitchen.
