I put new sleeves and a new front on my satin 1780s gown. I retrimmed my hat. And with a week to spare. Not wanting to loose momentum while I wait for my fabrics mart order, I decided to finally get around to recovering some old thrift shop shoes. They looked 18th century enough at the time, but the leather is tearing and the side is ripping. I recovered it with scarlet and white silk. Most of the extant shows I saw had leather heals, so I decided to just paint the heal rather than attempt to cover it. It's a bit messy and wrinkly, but it will pass the 5 ft rule. Now they just need buckles.
