Maestrina Chiaretta di Fiore, Barony of Dragonship Haven
I purchased a turnshoe kit from Champagne Faire on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/listing/701276758/german-turnshoe-kit-for-men-and-women)/ The kit comes with rubber soles and a pattern for 16th c. German shoes, but I modified the pattern to an Italian-esque style.
The pattern calls for leather uppers, but I didn’t have any handy, so I used leftover silk and bound the outer edges. The shoes are decorated with small slashes and white soutache trim. They are entirely machine sewn (and from stash!) and the first shoe was completed in under a day, including drafting and testing the pattern.
A blog post of the process will be posted at https://kitsclothingcollection.com/.
