Sewing Patterns for Scrubs

  1. 0
    Hi all,
    I am curious as to whether anyone out there has any suggestions on where to find sewing patterns for scrubs. One of my hobbies is quilting so I have a giant stash of fabric, and would love to make some scrub tops. I usually wear scrub tops with an empire waist or a tieback. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I found one once in the big pattern books that you find in a shop that has sewing stuff. Same pattern book that you would use to get patterns for dresses or other clothing, McCall's or Simplicity come to mind.

    JBudd recently made herself some nice scrubs. I've seen them at work. PM her and ask how she did it.

    One of my friends makes her own scrubs...she took a scrub top apart and used it as a guideline.

    I have several New Look scrub patterns. You can get them at Joann Fabrics (or any other fabric store). My only thing is that I'm picky about fabric quality so it ends up being cheaper and more practical to just buy the ready made ones.

    All of the standard, familiar, pattern companies (Simplicity, McCalls, Butterick, etc.) now offer multiple patterns for scrubs -- I see them in fabric stores all the time.

    I like the Simplicity pattern with the raglan sleeves. Don't have to insert sleeves, just hem the edges.
    The V neck always seems too low for me, so I inset an extra triangle of cloth behind the V edges.

    You can even get scrubs patterns (sometimes) at the sewing section of your local Walmart. They usually have drawers full of patterns. Look through the pattern catalog the pattern number and search in the drawers for the right pattern. Also find patterns at any other sewing or fabric stores

    Kwiksew has a couple of different scrub patterns, too. If you're going with Simplicity, McCalls or Butterick, you can get them on sale for 99 cents or 1.99 at most of the fabric stores. The sales cycle about every 3 weeks.
