Velvet Booties

Just catching my breath after the ball gown sew-a-thon and getting ready to fly up to San Francisco for the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. I strolled about the Pasadena City College flea market on Sunday and found these.
Velvet is so hard to photograph 
Curvy little heel, square toe, what's not to like! They do have a rather thin sole I may have a rubber dance sole put on just for cushion. I bought them for a bustle day dress but they may make it into the regular rotation.

Speaking of Dickens Fair, I finally finished a UFO jacket cut out about two years ago. The skirt I've had for almost 20 years! (Gulp). It was asking for a jacket and I caved, see.

Use all the jet!

Flashy and respectable, it can be done. Now to pack petticoats and hats and hoop skirt and..... well you get the picture.
Ever Your Thimble,
Miss Brilliantine
