My school wants me to have dark green scrubs.
I want to have nice, customized fit, dark green scrubs with lots of pockets.
I am not very rich. It would cost less to make them. I've made scrubs before, but am running into an unexpected roadblock: finding the right fabric.
There seems to be a fabric store conspiracy around here to sell their solid-colored poplin or broadcloth in either 100% cotton (doesn't that wrinkle?) or 65% poly, 35% cotton that feels like stiff plastic (belch!).
I spent this whole evening looking for 50% cotton, 50% poly, (or, even better, 65% cotton, 35% poly) solid dark green poplin or broadcloth online.
No luck. Unless I want to order 10,000 yards or more from China.
Help! Fellow scrubs-makers, can you tell me:
1) Where I can find cotton/poly fabric that won't feel like cardboard against my body, or......
2) How I can find a cotton fabric that is wrinkle resistant in the solid color I need?
Thank you in advance for any help you could give me!
