I just recieved 3 diapers from Aleshia of Tiskin's trousers. One front snap, one front aplix, and one side snap. All were very well made, turne and topstitched. I liked that the front snap one had two rows of snaps; a little more work to do up, but NO wing droop. The soaker was very cleverly made, contoured and with little channels to help things stay in the diaper. The side snapping one fit very well, also (EXTREMELY adjustable lots of snaps) too, tho it was slightly bulky. She has great and unique taste in fabrics and a nice eye for detail. I got these off ebay, tho she has a site online. I would certainly buy from her again .

I've ordered several of Aleshia's side-snap diapers and fleece covers. They are very well made! There are 4-5 sets of snaps for a wide range of adjustability. The fleece covers are so trim! I've always gone custom through her and the turn-around time is amazing! Always have my dipes by weeks end. Great work, Leshia!

I had a pair of coustom longies made by Aleshia and they are AWESOME. So beautiful and the craftmanship on these just ROCK! She is very sweet and easy to communicate with. I will be placing another order with her shortly! I have a feeling her stuff is going to be untouchable soon (as soon as the hyenas get ahold of her)

I have one of Aleshia's fitted diapers. I like it very much for the price. The diaper is more absorbant than ones I've paid twice as much for. The diaper is a bit thicker, but that doesn't bother me any in the least, still trim fitting. She has great customer service and a wide selection of patters and options for the inside.
I opted for a fleece inner lining b/c I've had the best success with that, but she offers other options which is nice. She also offers the sewn in doubler or the snap in doubler.
I second the previous reviews. Great diaper, fantastic price!

I found her on ebay w/ an auction a different diaper. I followed the link to her website and decided to try her diapers. I love her motto, "Every Baby Deserves Cloth", so I bought from her.

I have 1 pair of longies, 1 pair of shorts and 1 on the way, and I love Aleshia's work, turnaround was maybe a day, and the wool is divine!

Her work is fabulous, the pictures don't do it justice!

I also ordered a pair of custom longies from Aleshia. They are very well-made and absolutely gorgeous (HPY!) and I received them very soon after ordering them (even though she had to place a special order for the colorway I wanted). I give her for quality, cost & speed.

I now have two pair of shorts and two longies by Aleshia of Tiskin's Trousers. These are some of the best bargains out there in the wooly world. The work is flawless, the customer service is superb, and the prices can't be beat. $40 for a pair of custom crotched longies in HPY!!! I love these. Another big for Tiskin's Trousers. You don't have to spend a fortune to get quality wool items made from fantastic yarns.
