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.

I am at a beginners sewing level and I took my time to follow the steps shown. It was obvious and clear to follow, definitely worth a try and awesome pattern for hidden adjustments! I added a tag I thought was cool in front and played with the color patterns.
Amazing Pattern! I bought both the Grow With Me Romper Patterns and plan on writing separate reviews for them since I haven't yet made the hooded reversion. My daughter wears 2T and I made her the 12month-3T size, my son wears 3T (he is very slender) and I made him the 3T- 6T size. They fit very well for both my kids who have opposite body types. This pattern was very simple. I think a novice sewer could do it. It took about an hour and a half maybe 2 hours to make the second romper. Overall, I highly recommend this tank romper and that you start with this one before the hooded version. On first impression the hood version is much more difficult.
love this romper so much!! The sizes run a little small I would say, this is the 3-12 month on my 9 month old! it’s super easy to make and I love how they look on her!!
I purchased a grow with me romper and while it was great, it was almost $50! I thought maybe I could sew one (or 5). I am a beginner at sewing. I have sewn an apron and two pairs of pants. This pattern is so good I had no major issues following the instructions and it was my first time sewing jersey knit. I also asked the seller a few questions beforehand and she gave me excellent and thorough answers. I plan to buy more patterns for sure!
