I want to make my own knee-high chuck-style shoes, since I can't possibly pay $40-$60 for a pair. I plan on doing this by re-covering some old chuck knockoffs (low top) I've got that have seen better days.
The only problem is...

1. I have no clue what I can make the pattern off of since I don't own anything that high.
2. No clue what kind of fabric I should use
3. I've got only one tutorial for re-covering low tops to help me- http://www.chezlin.com/2008/09/oh-my-god-shoes/

Ok, so that's three problems... But you get the idea.
Help?

You'd be wanting this tut, i think.

It was here on craftster, but I can't find the post anymore. So I found it on livejournal.
I'm planning to make thigh highs.

OMG THANK YOU! =D
I'll combine the two tutes, since my shoes aren't all one color. (They are pinstriped)
Thank you x10000000!!!
