Anyone else prefer custom made scrubs - page 2

I am 46 years old, really. The last 10 years I have switched from landaus, and all my scrubs are custom made and fitted. I also decide on the material used. I have gotten away from the synthetics and... Read More

    Does anyone know of any websites for templates or instructions for sewing your own scrubs? I am going to be purchasing a serger and would be able to make them myself, however i would like to see a pattern or a show me how.

    I do like cherokee workwear scrubs thats what I wear now. I love the fit.

    I agree with the other response. They are fairly simple to make. Get a pattern and follow the instructions!! It's that easy!!

    Hi everyone! I am a fairly petite person - so have been dealing with sizing issues for a while...these posts are really helpful.

    I found a couple of sites that do custom made scrubs that were helpful (in case you prefer to buy vs. make): sassyscrubs.com, blueskyscrubs.com and I also found this new company that just launched www.tailormedscrubs.com

    I ended up getting a pair from TailorMed because it was a easier to design and I liked that I could choose where to put my pockets - they also said they are going to send it to me in 2-3 weeks which was pretty good considering they are making them by hand.

    sure do, i make my own and then can put all the pockets i want where i want. sewing is also "my" time. also i suffer(ha-ha) from short leg dz and hate buying clothes only to have to hem them to fit me. now i just adjust the pattern to how i want it to be on me. have also had fun adding lace to cover the wear and tear around the neck. everyone wonders where i get my scrubs. i love watching their faces when i tell them i sew them. sometimes patients recognize the patterns from material stores and we share sewing secrets and stories.
    i wish i had you around, i always have a hard time getting my scrubs to fit, since i'm into body-building; i have to mis-match all of my scrubs.

    I am not a seamstress by a far shot, but if you like the cherokee scrubs, couldn't you just seam rip a set of scrubs apart, and use that as your template?

    Just a suggestion, not sure if it is really do-able or not.

    yup, that would work, just make sure you add back the seam allowance. You can treat it as a pattern and make whatever changes you want.
