Obviously I was being too defeatist :oops: I've just put it on R and it wasn't much of a struggle if I pick her up by the waistband and jiggle. So thanks ladies. :D I'll put some pics up later.

Maybe the additional layer in the soaker of the skirtie isn't nessassary and we could do away with it and that would make a wee bit more stretchier :-? We are always open to suggestions in improving products :wink: :D

We'll be more than happy to help to get it right for you :wink:


I don't think it is the size, just her hips to waist ratio, the large would be too big as once on the medium is a great fit. I think the skirtie is fabulous as it is, I use tights over it so the additional layer of fleece gives me extra confidence it will work.

And stop tempting me with interlock! :evil: :giggle:

we jiggle here as well.
I got Gracie's second skirtie made slightly higher in the rise and it is much better.
One thing though, does any one else find that fleece skirties rise up at the back??

Good idea about the rise as the large would be too large everywhere else. And yes the skirt is longer at the front, but it does have to go over the bulk of the nappy at the back so maybe that is why.

Yay so glad its working out :wine: It does take a bit getting used to fleece i think and sorry for tempting you :giggle:

What we could do is make the back slightly longer on the skirt to accommodate the big bum because at the moment the skirt is the same length all the way around which makes it look nicer when off but when on the length looks slightly longer at the front iyswim Would love to hear comment on this :wink:
