Not sure what, "added 1in.FBA" means. This is for my sister, normally a sz.3X but,needs wider in the hips. Should I buy size 3 or 4X and do some alterations?

What was the final verdict as far as fit for your sister? I have purchased this pattern and the fabric to make a set, but I'd love to hear how the final fit was on this pattern before I chose my size.

Very nice of you to make these for your DSis. Nice variety.

Your sister is lucky to have you sew for her. Love the colours and the neckline trims look really great.

As always, your reviews are complete and interesting. Also, you have a good eye for color. I agree on the salmon and green, very summery! She can just tell everyone she shops at a designer boutique for scrubs. Truth is "you" designed them for her. I am sure the patients like the variety..

They look great, and I'm sure the quality of the fabric is better than that found in RTW scrubs. Another idea for the back neckline: I use a KS scrubs pattern, too, and I redrew the back facing so that it's a deep U-shape - maybe 4 or 5 inches at the CB. I'm sure when I saw it in RTW, the purpose was hanger appeal, but I liked it, and when it's topstitched in place, it adds a subtle design element.....and yeah, it looks better on the hanger, too.

Well, I'm just IMPRESSED with the way those V-necks turned out! Did you follow the KS pattern directions, or do you have a TNT method for those?

Great Scrubs! Wow, you have one very lucky DS! But, I certainly understand how you wouldn't want to go into mass production! You're too creative for that.

Great looking scrubs, Debbie. My personal favourite is the centre one, the one with the salmon, turquoise, black and other colours.

Great scrubs Debbie. Your sister is one lucky girl. I hope you keep dropping not so subtle hints about this fact. ;-)

Wow! I'd love to see these if I was sick :-). You're a very good sister...

khurtdvm, The sleeves are set in flat before the sideseams are sewn. The top has a slight drop shoulder and there is no ease in the sleevecap so the sleeves sew in 1:1 with the armhole. Easy-peasy!

Thanks everyone. My sister keeps telling me I could start a business just with her co-workers but she really doesn't want me to make *everyone's* scrubs, only hers. :-) Besides, it wouldn't be fun anymore.

I am a nurse who can truly appreciate these!!! I must make myself some! Love the fabrics! I wish I were your sister!!

Very snazzy. Your sister is lucky, she'll be the best dressed medical professional around. I especially like the fabrics in the center one (salmon and turquoise with striped trim).

More great scrubs! I like the neckline treatments and will refer to them when I make DD#2's next scrub set. Thanks.

These are amazing. My mom is a nurse, but isn't on the wards anymore. If she was, I would make her a dozen of these. They beat plain boring green any day.

I love the neckline treatment, Debbie. Too cool!
khurtdvm said... (3/21/07 1:24 PM) Reply
So when you do set in sleeves for the scrubs, do you set them in flat or in the round? Just curious....

These are FABULOUS! So "boutique" looking for scrubs! I'm sure your sister will love them...if only *I* could wear scrubs to work...
