Rio Posted October 4, 2002 Report Share Posted October 4, 2002 Hiya, I was wondering what the best way to sew elastics onto ballet slippers is? The lady at the ballet shop did not recommend machine stitching (and there I was hoping for an easy way out!). She said they would "pop"! So, I stitched the elastics on by hand. My shoes are leather, and it was really difficult. Should I be sewing them in on the leather bit? Or on the fabric part that runs around the "top" of the shoe? Also, even though I've only had 2 classes, I'm incredibly frustrated. My class only lasts an hour, and I don't feel as though that is enough! I've been thinking of ordering "The Joffrey Ballet's Ballet Fit" book. I've heard good reviews, but can't find a review on this board (checked under books and could not find anything). Is this a good book for learning more about technique (esp for an adult beginner)? Sorry if this is on the wrong board. Feel free to let me know! Thanks Rio Quote Link to comment
