"The neckband, which is a separate piece, has a horrible tendency to RIPPLE. " Oh yeah...I guess I could have mentioned that in my review, but I've found the same characteristic in RTW scrubs, so I convinced myself that I was just imitating RTW. Feeble, I know... I think the problem is caused by an ever-so-tiny curve in the front neckline. When you attach a straight band to a curve, you get the ripple. I've started cutting the band on the crossgrain instead of lengthwise. I take the band the ironing board, fold it as the instructions describe, then stretch and steam the raw edges, forcing the bands into a slight curve. The band will then be a little bit long for the neck opening; I just hack it off even with the shoulder after it's sewn in place. I still get a little rippling, but believe me, it beats some of the lousy stitching and little pleats seen on RTW scrubs. Or you could redraw the front neck so the cutting lines are perfectly straight; for some reason, I've learned to love that slight ripple - so much like RTW!

Looks great! I love the colorful print. I have made this top as well and not have the same ripple problem. However, when I made mine...I used two tons of Magic Sizing because I was making one to sell. Maybe the added stiffness would work for you? Try Wazoodle for some great poly/cotton scrubs fabric, and ebay too!
