I have made a couple of pairs of loafers for Agnes Dreary. The first one is made of silver colored leather.
The picture below shows the insoles and upper parts, The sides are straight pieces and in the picture, they are much wider than needed. I prefer to leave some extra just to be sure (it is easy to cut it off when attaching the uppers.
I used silver colored thread to sew the pieces together. The thread was a bit slippery, so I glued the ends inside just to be sure.
Finally, I glued the uppers in place and used brown leather for the outer soles. The heels are made of one layer of that same leather. The strap is glued in place.
The other pair is made of dark brown suede. The first picture shows the uppers sewn together.
The pictures for silver loafers do not show how the uppers are glued in place, so here it is.
When making the heels, it is a good idea to glue a larger part in place and then trim it when the glue is dry. This way, the heel is just the right size.
Here is the finished pair.
