Despite all the mad end of school busy, I have managed to crank out 2 more scrub tops for our daughter. She has a birthday coming up and she told me that she really, really would like some more scrub tops. Then she told me how much she likes it when I make them and how all her co-workers think I should make scrubs for them. It was a total butter Mum up fest so how could I refuse? So, Emily, stop looking at this blog post or you will ruin your birthday.
I like to change up the design features with each top just a little bit. The top one is a cotton poplin print from the fabric shop trimmed with Kona coal. And then the next one is Moda's Simply Color in purple.
This is a New Look pattern #6817 and for the size I make, I can get away with a metre of the main fabric and then some for the trim. I make my own bias trim out of the contrasting fabric. As I have mentioned before, I totally super stitch the seams because nurses wash the scrubs a lot and they wear their clothes hard. Basically there are seams that will get a lot of strain. I did french seams everywhere so there are no raw edges. Scrub tops times 2.
Total fun! Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday.
