All I did for the fleece soaker was:
1) trace around a pull on pattern. I have Indisposables breathable pull on pants, so I traced these, adding about an inch around the perimeter because I wanted it a little bigger to go over a big nighttime diaper. I traced with the fold of fabric at the crotch.
2) Cut out 2 of the exact same pattern.

3) I did a serge stitch around both pieces to attach them, so it was like
working with one thick piece of flannel.
4) sew the sides together -- I didn't leave a whole 5/8" seam, I did as small
as I could do easily.
5) Then I made casings at each leg hole and the waist. A big enough casing
for my safety pin to fit through. (after I sew the casing, I push the safety pin through the casing with the elastic attached to it.)
6) Tack down the ends of the elastic very well. Sew casing all the way

That's it!! I am sorry my directions are so crazy -- please feel free to ask
anything to clarify. I don't know how it works, but it does!! Not even a damp feeling or "sweaty". Just dry and soft all night long!\
