I wanted to make some asian inspired scrubs. I found this really pretty asian looking fabric and this other fabric that has parasols on it. I started this set a while ago, but it went in the to-do-later pile. So I finished it last week. I added a lot of detail to the scrubs: piping, top stitching, hand sewn on usable frog closures, matching fabric buttons, set in small kimono-ish sleeves, french seams, belt loops. I love pockets so besides the 2 pockets on the bottom I added inseam pockets on the top and on the pants. The pants also have side pockets with top stitching. I did not use a pattern. I looked online and drafted from there. The collar has interfacing to keep its shape. The top doesn’t need the belt, but I thought it added to the idea of the top kind of obi-ish. The pants I made a little big so when I wash and dry they will fit perfectly. ( I know I should wash before hand). They were a hit with my co-workers, patients, and families. They stood up the test at work!!!
