No-Stretch Boot Cover Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay No-Stretch Boot Cover Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay
After several requests, here is my tutorial for Non-Stretch Fabric Boot Covers! This works for any kind of fabric and uses an invisible zipper closure at the back of the boot cover.

I've made quite a few boot covers, all of them different, but most employing this method. Please let me know if you have any questions!

 This'll be my first time doing boot covers! I'll definitely do it on scrap first, but otherwise I have some nice satin taffeta that I'll be using for Sakura Miku. I hope this turns out okay!

Do you think instead of extending it all the way on the bottom of the shoe, that I could just tack it down with something around the edge? Like, E6000 or Hot glue?

E6000 or epoxy glue or shoe glue.  Hot glue won't hold it to the sole, but it will hold it to the shoe fabric.

Yeah, that's what I'm planning to do. I want to be able to use the shoe's sole (hopefully).

I've got E6000 on hand so I'll probably use that :3 I'm just a tad bit worried of messing something up with something that permanent x3

I've got a bad habit of touching things before they're dry...

How does the fabric on the bottom of the shoe hold up during use? I imagine it would get worn out if you're walking outside (sidewalks, streets, etc.).

It holds up well enough for inside walking. If travelling outside on pavement, I recommend reinforcing the sole with non-skid fabric, rubber soles, or some such.

Just make them longer.  You can extend them as far up your leg as you want.

I want to make boots for Colette form Tales of Symphonia-do you think this way of making boot covers would work?

Sure!  Colette's boots are pretty simple - you should be able to make those easily.
