Would love to get help! Thanks a lot in advance.
you'd have to lift up the insole and glue/sew the extra parts on underneath. while you're doing so, you could also add some extra padding underneath, to make the shoes more comfortable.

Any ideas if that would look good, and how the legs of the jumpsuit should be?

show us the dress!

ive been wanting to know that too...ive always been curious about that, maybe if you paint the necklace with multiple thin layers and then put a coat of transparent glossy varnish could work....if you actually do it, please show us!

^ I'd like to know too... I have a bag with gold hardware I'd love to paint but I also fear chipping and cracking.

I think it would depend on the texture of the necklace. If it is more shiny and slick, then the paint might not take hold as well. If it did stick initially, i would say that it would most likely eventually start cracking and chipping over time.

My tribal pants are finally done! They're not truly DIY, because I didn't sew them, but I was behind the choice of the fabric (it came from Africa) and model. I can't wait to wear them!
