AIO with with gusseted soaker. Now adult version.

One more update to show an adult version of this style AIO:



This one is a sized AIO with applique. Same style: AIO with dual pocket opening and gusseted soaker:





My newest creation :
AIO with natural inner, two pocket openings, inner gussets and a ruffle!
Half of the soaker is stitched to the inner, half is loose for quicker drying time. The loose part can be tucked in the pocket opeing of laid on top of the inner.



Here is same style AIO but with gusseted soaker.

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets

Ooooh! I love it! What pattern did you use for the gussets?
For the ruffle & two different PUL's being used...do you just have two layers of PUL or whatever on the outside and a hidden PUL layer?

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets

Thank you!
I have a new, I think, improved version. I have drafted another pattern. Now the soaker part has gussets not the diaper inner. I just need to find time to sew this diaper. I'll post more pictures then.

I used my pattern but I think any pattern would work. The gussets are similar to Rocket Bottom Twist. I just tweaked the shape a bit so that they would work with non-stretchy fabric too.

Construction: outer PUL, inner PUL or any stay-dry fabric. Natural fabric for the inner center: sherpa in this case (I love it and it matches).
ssqueakert, if you want to make something similar for your little one and have questions, I'll be happy to help.

Subbing in case there is a tute or something. That's adorable!

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets

If there is interest, can make a tute or something
Basically what you need to do:
after you cut your inner and stitch a strip of fabric to make modified welt pocket opening, do not finish it. Stop after you cut the opening. Then cut "a hole" in the inner. It will have the shape of your soaker (don't forget to add SA) The back of this "hole" is already cut - it is your pocket opening.
Then serge your soaker to that "hole" and finish your modified welt pocket opening.
First time you try, you may want to skip inner gusset part and do regular style diaper.

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets

I'd love to see a tute, but I wouldn't ask you to do it just for me; I know they are a lot of work. lol. I've only done a few small turned/topstiched fitteds about 5 years ago. That was a pain b/c of the thick layers of the built-in soaker parts {I was sans serger at the time too}

Is it really cost effective you make your own diapers? I'd have to buy the PUL and sherpa/bamboo/whatever inners at JoAnns {drive an hour there and back - or order it}, altho' our Wmart has a few bolts of PUL now, but not the others. + snaps etc.
Or is it just that you can make them how you want them?
I make dresses for my 4.5yo granddaughter but it's not really cost effective - but I enjoy it and it's something different than what all the other kids have. lol. Are diapers the same pretty much?

Anyway, that diaper is soooo adorable! Makes me want to try it. I do have some of the free patterns that are out there...
