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!

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

Could you take these boot covers off and switch boot covers? I only have one pair of boots and I need to different designs for two characters.

Yes, that's why they are removable.

How do you do the soles of the covers? I have a pair of flats so I don't have the space created by the heel to loop around. Specifically, I got the front part of the cover figured out, but not the back part where the zipper is. Would not having a strip of fabric going under eventually make the boot cover ride up from the back after some walking? Am I making sense/can you understand what I'm trying to ask?

You can either make the covers go over the soles (making a sole piece) or use elastic. It will not "ride up" because you should make it snug enough to fit properly.

Essentially, you are making spats with a zipper in the back. I'm not sure how to explain it further - the pictures show you everything.
