Now,there is a couple of things to check when you are making these.
- Size up for a cloth nappy,by 3 or more sizes.
Off we go,tally ho!
Sew two rows of gathering threads between the notches at the top of the pocket.
Fold and press a 3/8ths seam along one edge of the binding.
If you knot the threads together it will enable you to ease the gathers along the whole pocket.
Fold and press the edge of the pocket along the basting thread.
I gently poke holes in my pattern piece and then mark with my chalk pen.
Leave a small gap at either side to thread the elastic through.
Pin the leg bindings together.
*Remember to check the length if you want gathers*
Sew in place.
I measure across my child's back,hip to hip and cut the elastic 2/3 rd's the length.
*ETA another method, to get that nice flat front, is thread the elastic through as normal and then smooth the front waist (push the gathers to the back) and topstitch the waistband, vertically.*
Like so (see above)
I added some cute little bows.
