Petit Pli Clothing Expands To Fit Kids As They Grow

At last, clothes that fit your kids even after dramatic growth spurts! Royal College of Art graduate Ryan Mario Yasin used his background as an aeronautical engineer to devise a set of permanent folds that let clothes "unpack" when pulled, so they stretch over children as they get bigger.

Pintucks in children's clothing years ago had the same result.

When my son was a toddler I bought him a pair of sturdy OshKosh flannel-lined overalls with adjustable shoulder straps. I unrolled the plaid cuffs and let down the shoulder straps and those overalls lasted him for 2 or 3 years. When he finally outgrew them they were passed down to his younger brother who also wore them for a few years. They were the best clothing investment I ever made and still looked good when I donated them to a charity many years later.
