Woah, I've been looking for a tutorial like this for hours... It's not for a Link cosplay, but the boots I have to make are almost the same... And they're going on well! I'll link you the photo when they're finished!

Did you use   interlining?
Does it work to make the boots more rigid? :/ ...

I tried looking "interlining" up, and I'm afraid I don't understand the term :) Can you explain it so I can try to answer the question? :3

Shit ;___; i mean, that fabrik that you put on the nonshowed side of the piece... Mmh... That fabrik that keeps the other piece of fabrik more rigid. Huum! T_T sorry, but i dont know how to describe it better.. Did you understand?

Oh yeah, I think I know what you mean!
Well the suede just had that back. The fabric itself was very stiff. On the very top of the boot, it is some thin (brown) cardboard that I used to stiff'n it. You can use e.g. some silk interlining to have your feet slip easier into the boot, or you can use...uhm.. I don't know what it's called in English, but we have this thing called 'vlieseline' which is some kind of fiber fabric that you glue onto the inside (non-showing) of your fabric using an ironer. This makes it more stiff. You can try to google search images on 'vlieseline' if you want to see pictures =P
I hope this helped! :3

Foe knee-high boots I usually buy about 200 cm just to be sure, but I think 150 cm will do as well :)
Again, it depends on how long and big they are supposed to be :)

I think you can, before you put in the zipper or attach the cover to the boot, make a fold in the fabric and then stitch/sew it to keep it in place :3
Of course the fabrics you use have to be pretty soft unless it CAN end up maing some weird folds when you put the cover on the boot (because the boot it rounded and the fabrics are more square-like)..
I hope this makes any sense :P

I suppose :3
As long as the leather is not too stiff, you I guess you can make a boot cover from it ^^

What kind of fabric are you using? Is that a form of pleather? (fake leather)

Anyway, I plan to use bits and pieces of this tutorial for my Skyward Sword boots. They're similar in basic detail.

Yes, it's pleather :P fake suede to be exact!

Good to know. Looks a little thicker than the stuff I have, but I'm using rubber boots as a base, so hopefully they should hold the fabric well with a little glue.
