Love this pattern! I've bought a few other patterns, but this is by far my favorite. The width is perfect and I love having so many different length options.
So easy to follow, and I love the tips/hints about different fabrics at the end - I used Zorb and it works great! The only modification I did was make the "night" pattern a little longer. I get to save money and reduce plastic during my period, which I love. Also great support - I e-mailed Elizabeth with a question about the snaps and received a helpful reply the same day!
I am a very novice sewer. This pattern was easy enough for me to follow without much help from sewing mentors. I made a couple for my 14 year old daughter (who has been using the ones commercially made by a large cloth diaper company) and she said that she liked these ones a lot better. I made her the smallest size and they are a great size for her.
