THAT said...I can't sew a stitch to save my life.
When I was wrestling with the "I'm broke and need longies" ordeal, I drug out the sewing machine and tried to make Ezra some pants. They were HORRID.
I'd get a pair done, put them on him for fit and then go back to the drawing board and try another handmade "pattern." By the time I got a pair of pants sewn that would go up and over his diaper and fit his massive thigh, the pants looked like they should fit a fat man. They were JUMBO lol.
I think I'll stick with the Gap.
I'm so excited that this works.
I'm really a die hard "natural fibers" person....at least when it comes to cloth diapers. But jeesh...I guess if I'm putting him in Gap outer clothes and then insisting on natural fibered diapers, then screw it, I'm taking an easier route sometimes. I put him in a pair....WITHOUT wool underneath and my oh my is it trim. It's exciting. Like I personally feel a bit liberated. I do love my wool, but this will cut me some serious slack. I change him everytime he pees so this should work. (By the way....why does my 4 month old pee every five min?)
I'm going to go post a thread on this.
