My candy sweetheart scrub set

Eureka , Califor...






I made these scrubs for Valentine’s Day. I was inspired by a heart shaped box full of chocolates! I saw the candy fabric and BINGO!! I paired the chocolate fabric with heart and batik brown and pink dot fabric. I made a sweetheart neckline by ruching the middle and handsewen tucks on the side to give the right effect I was going for. I fitted the top to my bust and partially my waist. It was very figure flattering. I left the bottom unfitted because my hubby and I are planning to have kids in the next couple years so there is room for a belly. I added inseam pockets and two fun chocolate pockets. The one side has two rectangle pockets and the front one I added a little fun detail and embroidered the chocolates frosting (can’t really see in the photos). The other one is a giant heart shaped chocolate pocket with ruffles around it. I added a little front pocket on that one too. I did set in sleeves with a little pleating on top. For the back I sewed many tiny button holes and weaved the back ties through. I think I might add some little heart buttons or snaps for pocket closures on another day. I did not use any offical pattern; I traced a scrub top on muslin I liked and altered it and made my own pattern.

The pants I am still trying to perfect. I did some french/felled seams and other seams are just overcast. I added inseam pockets and a double cargo pocket. I went all out and made a really cute back pocket that is shaped and embroidered like a jean pocket. I was going to add some of the dot fabric, but I kept the pants universal to wear them throughout the year.

It was soo much fun to wear!!!

      thanks for the comment.. I agree I try to bring fun and some shape to the blah-ness of medical scrubs. I have the freedom to do as I want so I do. :)
