Vintage fitted cloth diaper pattern from 1975...



7 3/4 "
10 1/2"
16"
16 1/2"
Sew 3 on with a zig zag stitch.
Elliptical piece
Cut 2 of diaper piece.


Can you tell how it goes together?  It's pretty simple.  Cut two of the diaper piece from flannel and three of the elliptical piece from flannel.  You can also use terry cloth, I imagine.  When I was making these for Sarah in 1975, I used all flannel.
Sew the three elliptical pieces in the center of the wrong side of the large piece as shown.  I used a zigzag.  Then put the two right sides of the large pieces together and sew around the edges with a 1/4" seam, leaving an area large enough to turn it right side out.  Clip the curves.  Turn it right side out and  iron.  Then top stitch all around close to the edge.
Cloth diapering at it's finest in 1975!
