How many layers for flannel fitted?

I am using the Trimsies pattern, so I will have the fitted, plus a sewn in soaker and I can make a doubler too. Although perhaps I will just use a NB PF as a doubler. I want it to be pretty absorbent, but not take forever to dry. Any ideas? Thanks!

I would do 3 layers in the diaper itself and then do 2 sewn in soakers of 3 layers each, one sewn in just at one end and and the other sewn in just at the other end. That'll give you a total of 9 layers and it would still be pretty trim and still dry quick since the soakers aren't sewn down, KWIM? It would also be easy to add in a doubler and keep it trim and add absorbency.
