I’ve always hated doing shoe and boot covers until my friend introduced me to this method. Turns out it’s not very well known how to do it! So I decided to take some photos while I did my most recent ones and make a tutorial for others to use. This tutorial can be used for socks, shoe covers, spats, custom boots, and anything else you can think of!
I’m only covering how to make the pattern, not how to sew it because I feel like that part is pretty straight forward.
Here we go~
Skill level required: beginner
- a body
- a friend!(not required, but VERY helpful!)
Here are your supplies! I used blue tape because it’s what I had lying around, but I would suggest packers tape. It’s a lot easier.
((I’m gonna go ahead and reblog this over here because you can use this method to make the boots for SnK cosplays, you just gotta be sure to add enough ease and room for a zipper. And I’d reeeeally advise doing a mock-up first, especially id you’re not familiar with pleather(which I’m sure most everyone plans on using for those damn boots).
So yeah, there you go, hope it helps <33 ))
