Yellow CareBear Scrubs

Added Aug 30, 2009

Eureka , Califor...






I tried something different and put an inverted pleat in the front so when I decide to have kids there is room for a belly. I used flannel, which was a little difficult to work with to make a scrub top. I did a multi-pocket with purple and white piping. I added a tie.I added another inverted pleat to the back to have it fit slightly better (not shown). I thought it would be hot for spring/summer, but it was not just comfortable. Again I did not use a pattern just traced a basic scrub top and altered it.

Material Notes

Yellow flannel carebear fabric, white and purple piping, purple seam binding large and small, thread.

    This is great. I am a medical assistant and have been making my own scrub sets. I got tired of the same design and was trying to find a different version. Yours is wonderful. I will post my scrubs eventually. I think. lol What pattern did you use and how did you do the multipocket?

      Well I took one of my scrub tops and folded it in half and traced in on my fabric then I kind of thought what I want in a scrub tops and altered it, added more fabric for a pleat or gathers. The easiest was to pull the top farther from the folded seam, thats how I got more fabric but the same shape. The pocket I just took fabric cut out pieces, layered them down, made sure they lined up how I wanted them to, added piping, and sewed them all together, then folded the side that is showing and sewed. The only issue I ran into was how thick the pocket was since i used flannel, so I had to reconfigure the pocket. thank for the comment.
