I want to make some scrubs for a 6 month old baby. Should I
make them kind of big so they will fit till she is one year old?
Not sure how to figure the sizing on little people that grow so fast.
Any suggestions will be very helpful.

Carl........... so here you are!

There are some nice patterns on Kwik Sew .. I was not sure if you meant like jumper type or other ones. But I checked here & Kwik Sew has some nice patterns. I have not sewn for little ones, just knitted but I add a bit of room for growth a year's worth of growth is a tall order though unless you have enough seam allowance that you can let them out later on & hem too to lower the pant lengths.
Have fun sewing these!
Don't forget girls this age love colorful things... so time to put on an applique or two on those tops... smile.

The most common place where little ones grow fast is in the length. I used to make DS overalls and that's how I know this (he's 40 now ). So what I would do is go up a size, but then stitch both sizes in a large sittch, smaller than basting but larger than a regular stitch, and make the legs longer, but take them up by stitching tucks on the inside. It would look like a fold on the inside, but a seam on the outside.

I have a Singer Touch and Sew that has the chainstitch feature on it, and I would chainstitch the tucks on DS's overalls. The Singer book calls these "growth tucks".. Cute, huh?

Thank you. Now I have an idea for the plan.
Talk about sailing in unknown waters. They need to make some
fabric that expands instead of shrinking lol.

They do! It's called linen-rayon blend. But you probably wouldn't want to make scrubs out of it--even for a baby.

What business do babies have scrubbing in for surgery, anyway?
