The ever lively Natalie from Britex Fabrics and the costuming blog Frolicking Frocks, presents a wee tutorial on how to embellish shoes with paint and other crafty supplies. This is the American Duchess “Pemberley” shoe, which is the perfect accessory for ladies’ costumes of the 1790s through 1810. Natalie used Britex Fabrics’ imported petersham grosgrain ribbon and imported 30wt silk thread in the process of gussying up her dancing shoes. She plans on wearing these striped numbers to the upcoming Jane Austen Ball; we predict exuberant dancing and modest carousing.
