Avoid my backlog: $20 off ready to ship pairs! $74 to recreate this shoe in another size.

Sweet little outdoor ballet flats have a blue lining to provide that "something blue," if you are planning an outdoor wedding.

Strapless shoes make legs look longer (and therefore slimmer). Turned slippers like these were common dancing and walking shoes, historically.

These flats add about 1/4" to your height with super soft cushioned soles. The cushioning is 4-6 layers of felt, made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. These shoes look decadent but feel like a cross between wearing sneakers and being barefoot.

The toes of these shoes are slightly turned up to show the outer soles. Soles as pictured are recycled (upcycled!) rubber tread. The rubber extends up the side and back of the shoe upper about 1/4" and about an inch at the heel to prevent fabric from touching ground. These shoes are meant for indoor or light outdoor wear: garden parties, outdoor receptions, etc.

The lining fabric as pictured is a midnight blue cotton batik and the outer fabric is white, gray and olive silk brocade, which reads overall as a pale silvery gray color.

This pair is 7 1/2 wide and on display at Lucy's Bridal in Carmel, Indiana.

Shipping within US is typically PRIORITY MAIL. International orders (even Canada): shipping prices are for FIRST CLASS mail. I can upgrade to priority (typically 5-10 business days shipping time) for about an extra $10. First class mail is almost as fast, typically, but can take a month or even 2 months if a package gets stuck in customs.

These are truly custom-made shoes. I hand make these shoes to fit your measurements.
I make your shoes to fit your measurements, after you place your order. You really can mix and match styles and materials to customize your shoes. The shoes on my website are ones I have made before, and could make again. I am happy to mix and match materials, style, and features. All of my shoes are fitted to have a right and a left. That sounds obvious, but many handmade shoes are not.

Check out my shop section called "How This Shop Works" for detailed info about sizing, measurements, customizing options, fabric swatches, and the ordering process:


Can't decide what color? Two or more pairs of any of my shoes ship for free (in US). With three or more pairs, enjoy a bulk discount. Returning customers also enjoy a discount.

My dress shoes feel like barefoot sports shoes. I can work in orthotic supports if you would prefer additional arch support. (I ask that you purchase and send those to me, because what feels good varies from person to person.) If you wear custom orthotics, I can leave room in the shoe for those.

Different sizes of feet, extra wide or extra narrow feet? No problem. If you've had trouble finding shoes that fit, please ask for my help!

I only have a few demo pairs in stock at any time. If it's important to you to see an example pair of shoes before you purchase them, ask me what I can do. (I don't have all sizes in all fabrics in stock at all times, of course.)

For shoes, I have five toe shapes: boxy, upturned, round, pleated, and oval. The boxy and upturned shoes fit more loosely in the arch area than the round and oval styles. The boxy toe has extra room over the small toe and is the loosest fitting in the toe area. The upturned toe shows the most sole. The oval toe is the most tailored to the foot. The pleated toe shows no sole but is only suitable for indoor wear. The round toe is a hybrid of the oval and upturned toe styles. All of my shoes are patterned to fit your feet around the ball of the foot, and are meant not to bind in any way.

I am meticulous about collecting your measurements: that's because the accuracy of the fit depends on the accuracy of the measurements you provide me. With accurate measurements I can usually get it spot on. If I see something unusual in your numbers, I'll ask you to double check.

To provide me with accurate measurements, check out my listing for detailed shoe sizing and measurements info (now, thank goodness, with pictures!)


Thanks for your interest!
