Description: These shorts were made of a long strip of material with ties on each end. First you would tie the front "panel" around your waste, with the tie in the back, and the fabric hanging down the front like an apron. Then you would bring the fabric up between your legs (like a diaper, hence the name) and bring the ties around to the front, making a bow. They often were made of safari print fabrics.
