I make my children's robes double and long enough to touch the floor. I do this so the robe will last at least 1 year. For beltloops, I sew two big loops and when I attach them, I put the top where this year's waist is and the bottom where next years waist will be and stitch through both robe and lining in the middle of the loop. These robes can be worn when they are butt high as swim robes because the lower loop lets the belt grow.

Great idea for kids robes! I have noticed that one of my DH's bathrobes has this type of belt loop. I assume it is because what men consider their "waist" is a matter of their personal preference.

Years ago I sold men's clothing and the robes we carried were like that. Great for adults too when you don't know where to place the belt loop ;-)
