How do you put on a pirate boot cover?
To put on your pirate boot covers, first slide the covers up over you legs then put on and tie your black dress shoes (or any black shoes that have heels on them – you need the heels to get the full pirate effect).
How do you make boot covers stay up?
To help the garment stay up, I sew a piece of silicone-backed elastic band to the inside if the hem. This type of elastic is used in dessous making and it is simply an elastic band with one or more strips of silicone fused to one side. The wider the silicone strip, the better because it will give you more grip!
What can I use for shoe covers?
It’s a good idea to stash a couple of plastic grocery bags in your pockets or in your toolbox before heading outside to work in your yard. That way you’ll have quick shoe covers on hand. Just be sure that the bags you take along don’t have holes in the bottom!
