Espadrilles are fun to make and oh so satisfying! Imagine sewing up your own pair of shoes in whatever fabric you like!

I will drive my van filled with two sewing machines, espadrille soles, thread and interfacing for you to cut, and sew your very own Espadrilles. To make sure you get a snug and comfortable fit you will need to get one size down from what you normally wear. The Espadrille soles I buy are made of jute rope and are in European sizes. Please refer to the attached sizing chart to determine your best fit and then please send me a private message to let me know so I can get your size ready and prepped.

Please bring half a metre each of a good weight linen, canvas or cotton for the outer shoe and a lighter weight cotton or linen for the lining. I will supply the interfacing and hemp cord and needles with which to do blanket stitch arond the edge of your finished shoe for that traditional Espadrille look.
