This pattern is a PDF printable pattern, not a finished product. LG Hipster Front Closure Diaper/Pull-Up/Trainer Fit depends on the build of baby/toddler. For a chubby baby, it will start fitting at 15lbs. For a skinny baby, it will start fitting around 20 lbs. If your toddler is skinny it will fit to 55lbs. but sometimes the rise gets short for super tall/older kids. If your toddler or kiddo is chubby it will fit until 50lbs. 🙂
This is such a versatile pattern! Works great as a diaper as well as a trainer/pull up when snapped a setting looser so there is room to pull up and down.
Features included in this pattern… and all can be printed individually through adobe layers or all together:
- AIO (sewn in at seams with front/back inner flap seams)
- 3 Pocket Styles (Double Envelope Pocket, Sham Pocket, and Leading Edge
- Back Pocket,
- Fitted and hybrid diapers (both snap-in soakers or sewn in seam soakers),
- Cased Leg Cover with Optional Front and Back flaps,
- Turned and Topstitched Cover.
- Snake Soaker
- Optional Snake booster
- Optional Short booster
- Optional AIO sewn in hidden booster
- Optional Trifold Soaker
- Optional Snap to Fit Sized Soaker
- Optional Snap in the Front of the Diaper to snap the Booster In. This helps hold the booster/soaker in place and prevents drooping of fabric inside the front of the diaper.
The LG Hipster Front Closure has 4 rise settings to fit a very wide range of sizes.
The highest rise is 20″ but due to the angled front and back, the rise is substantially taller at the ends.
What makes it special? This pattern isn’t like other diaper patterns in that the front panel is angled as well as the snaps or velcro. The way it angles is to accommodate room in the belly and thighs and to wrap around and fit “like a glove”. The angled fit also accommodates super chubby thighs as well as chicken legs. It also has a wider front panel and shorter back panel to allow it the ability to pull on when snapped a setting looser than when putting on a diaper. The back wings are also slightly angled and this combo seems to really contour to baby’s body and prevent gapping, sagging, and misfit.
My testers went so above and beyond in this pattern test! We really have added just about anything we thought of that would make this pattern the best it can be. I’ve never had a pattern test that was so involved, had so many versions, and probably no other that has been more thoroughly tested. This pattern is trimless and uses layers for options. Layers allow you to print specific features/options you want and the ability to turn off options you do not want. See instructions for a detailed
HOW TO on layers and how to use them. This pattern also comes with the option to print in A4 format for internationals.
