Hi all, I hope its ok to post a question. I am wanting to make a mock wrap scrub top. There is not a pattern that I can find. Does anyone have any ideas on how i'd go about making my own.? I was considering either altering a normal scrub top pattern (scary since I am an "average novice" to sewing). OR finding a mock wrap top and making it a scrub top.
Thanks for any replies

Paula, I made a wrap scrub top (not mock) from Burda 8653. It turned out really nice and I got a lot of compliments on it. You could eliminate all of the topstitching and it might not be less difficult to put together. I know it's not exactly what you were looking for, but I thought I'd mention it.

Debbie Cook did a review a while ago about scrub tops she makes for her sister. I believe one of them was a mock wrap. You could check the pattern archives or send her a PM. And yes, the message board is the best way to pose these questions. HTH!

Paula, do you have an existing top you like? If so, consider sacrificing it for a pattern. Carefully take the existing one apart, making notes and sketches as you go so you can reassemble with new fabric. After you have the old one taken apart, press all pieces and trace onto fabric paper (or even old newspaper), noting seam allowances, etc. Thank have fun. I did this with a favorite pair of jeans that had that fantastic fit that was unachievable with any pattern and numerous alterations. When the seat gave up, I spent half a day ripping apart and tracing. Now I have a pattern that requires no alterations and fits perfectly. Good luck.

Paula, there is a great message board area that is the perfect place for this question. At the top of the page click "Message Board", and then choose the Pattern area and Post a Nep Topic. You will get lots of great feedback this way. Good luck.
