First time posting. I am working on my daughter's impression for the civilian side of our unit. So for, for her, I have been doing rather well for her dress and undergarments. Using period patterns and fabrics. However, my challenge is footwear. She is two about to turn three, and I don't have many references for small children footwear. Now, I know she would love to run around in her bright pink Paw Patrol blinking sneakers, but somehow I don't think that is period appropriate.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Many years ago, I found in an antique store a pair of vintage button up shoes that fit my 3 year old. Possibly a starting place for you ?
Several on ebay right now.
