Hubby and I are sewing our own diapers (yes, he's helping!!) for Baby, who's due to arrive around the beginning of December. We've finished ten or so of varying sizes, patterns, and materials, but they're mostly pocket-style with built-in waterproof layer (ie RRP adjusted or Cloth Revolution diaper patterns). I like to use a layer of cotton print outside the PUL layer for cute factor, but when I tried a wet test tonight, I realized there was some serious wicking going on. The inside flannel gets wet and just wicks straight onto the cotton outer, which ends up soaked. I'm thinking that's probably not going to work! Do I need to skip the cotton outer and just do PUL? Is there a pattern modification I can do? Something else I'm missing? Hubby also noticed a little tiny bit of wetness on the outside of the seams, even in PUL-only dipes. Can that be avoided/lived with?
