1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Scrub Tops Need Help!! on: January 31, 2010 09:07:01 PM
Hi CHerry Bomb,  I have bought several patterns with different neckline versions, but she is built like her dad, wide across the shouldlers, thick through the middle with no butt.  She simply does not come close to fitting a womens plus size pattern.  Her measurements are 56-57-55.  If it fits in one area, it doesn't fit in another.  I can generally read and follow a patterns, but I am no good at tailoring a pattern to fit her.  My most recent attempt was to take apart one of the store bought scrubs she has that fits well and use that for a pattern.  Somehow it ended up much bigger and I had to take it in at the sides and re set the sleeves.  The directions on the patterns for sewing the v-neck facing are so darn confusing. I can't figure out how to sew the point of the v-neck facing onto the shirt.  I know it has to be a simple thing that I am just  not seeing.  A suggestion I found on line had  cutting out my own bias tape, removing the seam allowance on the neckline and putting the bias tape over that, and that worked somewhat, but now the neckline looks stretched out and doesn't lay flay.  I think it may have something to do with removing the seam allowance and not overlaping the front facing pieces.  My daughter has gone out and bought 2 really cute pieces of material for 2 tops, but I am afraid to cut into them until I can get it right.  I am practicing on sheets for now.  I will try to do as you suggest and see how that goes.  I will let you know.  Thanks for the help.

I prefer the look of the second picture, but the way you did the v-neck in the first picture looks a whole lot easier to sew.  I always have trouble with the v-necks that come to a point.

I am trying to sew some scrub tops for my daughter.  Can anyone show me a tutorial on how to do the v-neckline?
