Sunday Funday…Part II DIY Booties

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Remember this post It was my first ever DIY blog post and it got an amazing response. At the time I decided to redo two pairs of booties and here is the Part II:
It started with these classic Vince Camuto taupe booties (buy similar HERE). I had worn them for a full season and really enjoyed the simple cut and the touch of gold at the platform. But they were definitely missing a unique quality about them. I decided that I would prefer a higher cut at the ankle plus I wanted to jazz them up and add a little sparkle…not too much…but just the right amount to add texture and flair.

So I scoured the local fabric store for just the right trim to create the look I was going for and found this wide elastic band that is both firm and flexible enough to create the base for which to place the band of sequins.
Then I got to work...
Step 1. Try out different ways to attach the trim until you find the one you like the best.
Step 2. Measure the length needed for each bootie allowing for overlapping and finished edges and cut.
Step 3. Glue the sequins evenly over the elastic band.
Step 4. Glue the elastic band partially along the top of the bootie leaving extra space near the zipper.
Oops…I messed up the order in the photo…really the next step is #6…try on the booties and decide how you want to wrap the edges…glue in place.
Step 5. Trim and glue down edges to finish.
Step 7. Attach strips of velcro with glue to the inside flaps of the overlapping edges to make a tight closure.
And this is what the final result looks like on:
Buy similar skirt and top.
