Longies?

Okay, I think I am just going to give in and buy a pair, but I am totally confused on the measurement thing.

My dd2 (5 months) has a 20 inch waist and weighs 20 pounds. When the description says waist 17" but stretches to 25", is that going to fit?

I know what an inseam and rise is, but would the rise really matter since I won't be using them as cover. I plan on using them as pants.

Thanks a bunch.

Oh yeah and if you have any that are cute and girly that are not too expensive (no more than $30), let me know. I also want some for dd1 but I don't have her measurements as she is asleep.

I think that the rise would still matter since you probably don't want half the diaper hanging out the top. Waist is elastic, that range should fit fine.

You should still get a rise measurement. Like the pp said you don't want the diaper to hang out of the top.

I'd be happy to make a pair for your dds if you would like

Re: Longies?

On the waist measurement, that should work just fine. If it is a stretchy waist, you don't want it to be 20" at rest, because it would be loose on her. You do want it to hug her waist slightly. Now you would want to size up if the waist was for example 15"-21" as she would be really close to the max. As long as she falls at the lower end or in the middle, they should be nice and comfy. As for the rise, yes that does matter as well as you don't want "baby diaper crack" to occur. But beware.... longies are addicting and lots of fun!!!

Re: Longies?

Okay, now just one more question...

I want something that I can wash in the washer and dry in the dryer, so do I really want wool? I am a lazy Mama who hates laundry, especially when you have to wash it by hand. What type of yarn do I need to look for when looking at these items?

If you want to be able to be able to use your washer and dryer then you will need to get acrylic instead of wool.
