Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - A Pair of Beaded Shoe Buckles

Here we are in the last season of Downton Abbey and I am been very remiss in posting more of Ruth Wyeth Spear's wonderful tips from the 1920s for the home sewist! To remedy the situation, here is a wonderful post for making a pair of beaded shoe accents, which Ruth states that you can make "quite easily and very economically"! Do you have "some cut steel beads, a scrap of buckram, a half yard of fine hat wire, and a bit of black satin"? Then make a pair for yourself to wear with your vintage 1920s dresses. And then make another pair as a gift! :)
