Tutorial of the Week
Spats, Spats, and Spats (Video). Since Halloween is coming up, we figured there might be some lolitas who want to venture into the Steampunk genre. We’ve combed through many spats tutorials but these seem to be the easiest way to make spats. The tutorial shows you how to start off with any pair of shoes, trace it, and then use it to make your custom pair of spats.
