This pattern offers five Grow-With-Me sizes of: 3-12m, 12m-3T, 3T - 6 years, 6-9 youth, and 9-12 youth These knit shorties fit as a loose fit tapered short on the smaller end of the size range and fit more like a biker short as the child grows. The sizes grow from a longer short to a shorter short. There are two short lengths and two short fits (relaxed or slim fit). The pattern also includes two skirt options (a full circle skirt* and a half circle skirt). There are so many fun summer options with this versatile grow with me pattern!

Why Are Grow With Me Patterns so Awesome?

I love Grow with Me clothing for so many reasons! It saves you time, money, and can even help save the environment.

-Saving You Time and Money: One of the biggest reasons we love Grow with Me clothing around here is because I spend so much time making clothing for my kids, I don’t want them to outgrow it right away (especially when I really love the fabric!). This also means they will go through less clothing, saving you money!

-Selling Grow With Me Clothing: I also used to sell handmade baby clothing and I found it hard to justify charging fair prices for my work, but once I started expanding to Grow With Me sizes, it was easier for me to justify the price to my customers because they could see the value easier.

-Environmentally Sustainable: Another huge reason I love Grow with Me clothing is the sustainability factor. Kids outgrow clothing so fast! It’s not only hard on the wallet, it’s also hard on the environment. According the a post on The Guardian, if we can extend our clothing lifespan by 9 months, we can reduce our carbon footprint by 20-30%!
Grow with Me clothing can be a more environmentally friendly way to clothe our kids!

-Fits the In Between Sizes: We also love that Grow With Me clothing fits even during those odd in between size where their legs are too long for their current size, but their waist is too small for the next size up!

-Diaper Bag Essential: Grow with Me clothing also makes great diaper bag clothing! If you are anything like me and you forget to change out the clothing in your diaper bag regular, Grow with Me clothing can really save you! I keep some tester version of my patterns in the car so there is always an outfit that will fit my kids if we have a mess emergency.
