Growing Fashion

Clothes and shoes help protect us from the weather, getting sick, and getting hurt. As kids get older, they grow out of their clothes and need new ones that fit better. But it's wasteful to always buy new clothes, because it takes a lot of resources to make and ship something new. How could you redesign clothes or shoes so they could grow with a kid and last longer?
