To kick off the new year, Josephine shows how to sew the ribbons and elastics on your pointe shoes! This is a long, overdue video but hope it can help any dancers who just earned their ballet boots.
There are many ways to sew pointe shoes, but Josephine shares the very common whip stitch method with a single loop elastic & stretch ribbon. This video also includes some answers to some frequently asked questions about that super special, first pair of pointe shoes.
Getting your first pair of pointe shoes is a special milestone. Be sure to get properly fitted & don't be afraid to speak up during your fitting. And know you're not alone when you're stabbing your fingers while you're trying to sew your first pair - don't worry, it took Josephine 3 hours!
