This pattern offers three grow with me sizes of: 3-12 months, 12m-3T, and 3T – 6y. The sizes are adjustable through the use of foldable cuffs or waistband and grow from a loose and longer fit to a tighter and shorter fit. With two different options for the neck type (neckband or cowl), three different sleeve options (sleeveless, long sleeve and t-shirt length sleeved) and three bodice length options (shirt length-banded, hemmed shirt length and tunic length-banded), there are lots of fun creations you can make.

This pattern is easy enough for a confident beginner to complete, though a beginner may want to skip the faux drawstring.

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. Hey

Absolutely my favourite kids shirt pattern from now on. My 4 year old is wearing the 3-6 size with plenty of room to grow. I changed the band to a peplum for this one but I've also made a tunic with the band. Highly recommend. It comes together so easily that by the 3rd shirt I didn't even need the instructions anymore. 10/10 would recommend.

Love this pattern! Super quick from purchase to download, printing and sewing! I see many more in my future. Only wish it went larger than a 6.

Finished a GWM tunic last night, my second AppleTree pattern. I started sewing last week with exactly zero experience or knowledge and so far have made 3 dresses and this tunic. These patterns are so well written that even absolute beginners will end up with beautiful clothing. Can’t wait to make more!
