scrub top for less than young woman

maryellenorchard | Posted in General Discussion on

i work in a medical office that requires scrub tops for all employees. i’ve made tons of them, especially the simplicity 8351 which has an inserted front panel with two buttons that i love (have probably made 20 of them, mostly seasonal ones). problem now is: i’m older! i now have a neck line that qualifies as a thanksgiving decoration and requires a mandarin collar at the least!!! can’t find anything that works as a scrub top with mandarin collar and 3/4 sleeve (age thing again). i’ve been putting off making my own pattern, but truthfully am afraid to take that first big step in muslin. any first hand advice for making my own pattern? i’ve been putting this off for a year now due to plain cowardness! help.

    Maybe you shouldn't start with muslin because that sounds too official and intimidating.  Why don't you get the ugliest cheap material  you can find because then you won't care if you mess it up?     rjf

    Hi Mary Ellen I have an old (l982) McCalls pattern 8138 that looks kind of scrub like. It has one version with a mandarin collar, fairly loose fit . It is a size Medium (14-16). I'd be happy to give it a new, useful home if you'd like it, Sue

      sue, thank you very much for your reply concerning the pattern i MAY BE making for a scrub top. if you have no use for the pattern you have i wouldn't mind giving it a try and i'd let you know how it worked out. i would reimburse you. are the sleeves 3/4?mary ellen

        Acrually the pattern has long sleeves with a cuff, but there is no reason why you couldn';t make it any length you wanted. This pattern has one version with set in sleeves, one with raglan and one cut on. In the latest Vogue magazine they show a pattern for a jacket that could be made without a front seam that might suit you, also. Very Easy Vogue #7915.

          sue, will definitely check out the vogue pattern, but only when it's on sale at joann's! i will let you know how appropriate it is.

          thank you.
