Three snap options and three ‘stage’ options provide the ultimate versatility for any stage of potty learning including real underwear. There are even instructions for hidden snaps so that beginners can enjoy the look of real undies without sacrificing the ability to snap them off for easy clean-up.
Stretchy sides allow the Stage 1 waterproof trainers to be pulled up and down just like real undies while maintaining a trim, panty-like fit.
The bikini style cut along with four different leg elastic options and 3 waist elastic options provide the fit and appearance of real undies.
Five sizes, fits an approximate range of 16” to 22” waist (underbelly measurement) or 12-18mo to 5T. A wide variety of materials may be used depending on Stage and options, but stretchy fabric like interlock or rib knit is a must. Other materials may include waterproof PUL, non absorbent knit such as athletic wicking jersey, cotton interlock/jersey, resin snaps and snap press or pliers, and elastic (knit, lingerie or fold over).
This PDF pattern is a 55 page document with 13 pages of instruction and graphics detailing all of the variations and options the pattern offers. Beginning sewers may learn new techniques like how to attach binding with elastic or sewing picot edge elastic. The clear graphics and captions will allow advanced sewers to breeze through the pattern without getting bogged down in the details. Each size is included in its own section without any overlapping pattern pieces so you can print and go without tracing or trying to follow nested pattern pieces.
