Katrina's Sew Quick Soaker Pattern! (It's free)
 
**If you would like to sell soakers you make from the pattern, I don't mind you selling them. All I ask is that you offer up one FFS or donate it to miracle diapers or a similar organization. If you don't intend to sell them for your WAHM business, I don't mind you selling the soakers you made for your lo that didn't fit so that you can recoup your money for materials and time.**

Have fun sewing!


I have updated the pattern a bit. It now dips a half inch more in the front than the original, but it also rises an extra half inch in the back so the overall rise should be the same as before. The link is listed below. If you need to add rise to your soaker, but like the waist and thigh measurements, you can extend the side seam lines until you get the desired rise. For example, if I wanted to make a medium long with my newer pattern, I would extend the side seam lines on the front and back soaker pattern pieces until they reached the waistband line for the large soaker.

I think this thread would be a good place to post pictures and questions about the pattern. I would still really like feedback on the pattern. The measurements are in inches at the moment, and all are at rest. Depending on the stretch of your fabric, you may have some variation in the measurements.

NB r-13.5, w-11.5"-13.5", thigh-5"-7"
Small r-15", w-13"-15", thigh-7"-9"
Medium r-17", w-15"-17", thigh-9"-10"
Medium/long r-19", w-15"-17", thigh-9"-10"
Large r-19", w-17"-19", thigh-10"-11"
XLarge r-20.5", w-19"-20.5", thigh-11"-13"
XXLarge r-22”, w-20”-22.5”, thigh-12”- 13”
XXXLarge r-23.5”, w-22”-24.5”, thigh-13”-14”

Stefanie's tutorial has pics to help you with sewing. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=508956


Here is a sample layout to give you an idea of the number of soakers you can get from fleece. You can find more on my blog.

3 mediums on 1/2 yd of 58" wide fleece.

Here are a few that I have made. I have tweaked the pattern a bit and will post more pics when I am finished with the new soakers. I just died the wool, so they are drying. The first two are made of wool interlock, and the second two are made from recycled sweaters.

I'd be interested in trying a pattern if it's easy to follow, and does not require the use of a serger. I have a dd who is in a L/XL and a son who's in a M/L. :hugegrin:
