Can't say that I like or dislike the item as I never received the item despite contacting the seller several times. I eventually received a refund and was told that item would still be shipped and shipping label was created but item was never mailed out. I really wanted to try these for my daughter and hopefully order more but am really dissapointed with the lack of communication from the seller. If the seller is no longer selling these items then the store should be closed so that customers don't waste their time :/

Works well, and came with two kinds of insert! My only issue is that on this pair, there are no whole characters; only pieces of them show. It happens with this type of print, and this was 'seconds' (description said it was because fabric quality wasn't great?) but I was bummed. I'm a fan of Super Skivvies anyway because I like the adjustable absorbency and the option to skip the inserts and use as regular panties. I'd buy more in the future, just not character prints.

The pottys Kryptonite.

Super Skivvies started in the Spring of 2009 on our dining room table. A friend was looking for an overnight solution to her daughter who was learning to use the potty. At the time, Super Skivvies was operating under the name of Green Ella Bean making decorated bamboo velour prefold diapers (photo to the left) and knit wool covers.
An offer was made to sew up some training pants for the friend, and to design them to be convertible (something that had not yet been introduced to the training pant market).
A couple of months later, our daughter, Ella, was showing signs of being ready to use the potty. We searched high and low for cloth training pants that were small enough to fit our then 18 pound 16 month old. Not only that, but we wanted something that would last past conquering the potty. Returning to the trainers previously made for the friend, we developed an extra small that would fit our tiny little potty learner.

After a bit of testing and pattern tweaking, Super Skivvies were born. Word started spreading, Skivvies started selling, and here we are today! Super Skivvies™ are made by hand by local Seattle seamstresses. The owner of Super Skivvies™ (Steph) no longer sews them herself thanks to your word of mouth! We thank you!

First off, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by. All of you make it possible for me to work from home, doing something that I love.

I am a single mommy to an amazing little girl, Ella. I began working with children in child care centers during my Junior year of high school, obtained an AA Degree in Early Childhood Education the year after I graduated high school, became a nanny in 2004 and have not looked back! I have always been a creative person, and have loved "making things" for quite some time. It was only natural to create things for children. I began crocheting at the age of 16, sewing at 19, and knitting at 23. I use only quality fabrics and supplies, and would never sell anything that I would not put on my own child. I am a perfectionist, very picky, and strive to provide only the best for you and your child(ren).

Super Skivvies™ are made by hand by local Seattle seamstresses (not me anymore!). We thank you for your business and word of mouth advertizing!

If you have any questions or special requests, please feel free to email me. I answer all emails promptly.

Happy Potty Learning!
