Wool or Fleece Longies, Shorties, and Soaker covers.

This is basically a tribute post to Katrina.  When I make her patterns, I dip the front a little extra, and I add a bit more in the back.  I also make thicker waistbands and leg cuffs.  I sometimes use sweater arms and just cut the tops of them to her pattern so they sew together nicely, and/or use the sweater sleeve ends for soaker cuffs, and the stretchy waist portion for the waistband of soakers or longies.

If I am using very thin wool, I do a full second body piece rather than just the wetzone piece.

There are so many ways to sew up her patterns.
