Sewing adult diapers is fast and easy with this adult diaper pattern, which comes with four sizes ranging from waist/hip (whichever is larger) 22-58". The small size fits youths perfectly! A great option for older children who have nighttime incontinence issues. Yet, the larger sizes comfortably fit adults. This adult diaper pattern is comfortable like a brief, yet will hold in any type of mess.

This adult diaper pattern has the option of an AIO (all in one) or a POCKET style. An AIO is a diaper that has the soaker built into it. A POCKET is a style of diaper that has an opening for putting a soaker inside of the adult diaper before use. The benefit of an AIO adult diaper is that the wearer (or caregiver) would not have to worry about stuffing the adult diaper before use. The benefit of a POCKET is that the wearer would have complete control of how much absorbency is placed into the adult diaper depending on their individual needs.

The side snapping design allows the wearer to use the adult diaper like briefs. However, if there is a mess, it is very simple to unsnap!

Out of all of the larger size diaper patterns I have tried, this pattern is the best one. I love that the instructions are simplified yet thorough. The diaper isn't bulky yet still holds liquid in without leakage. I love it!
