Hi,
I'm a dental student in need of some new clothes for work/school. As a crafty person I would like to make these myself but I'm totally lost at what kind of pattern I could work from. I have some sewing experience but this is a real challenge. I'd like to make something nicer than the binliner model I've been wearing for the last few years, but how to make something (slightly) fitted yet be able to move comfortably in it whitout putting strain on the seams?
Getting the fabric seems to have been the easy part.

These regulations apply to our clothing at school:
- no bare legs
- underarm bare
- no cleavage or neckline deeper than 10 cm from the neck
- being able to sit in it for hours whitout severing of some arteries
- no frills

has anybody made some medical/dental clothing themselves?

There are some really cute, modern scrub patterns out there now. It isn't all about the unisex scrubs anymore! I personally prefer a low rise scrub pant and a longer shirt so I don't end up showing panty. I know I've seen several Simplicity patterns that are a much more modern fit.

A practical and beautiful garment style is the Salwar Kameez suit from India. Though a lot of the beauty is in the fabric choice, the shape is still nice enough to look good in white, I think.

It is basically a long tunic with loose-fitting trousers. The tunic is usually somewhat fitted at the waist, sometimes with a more empire waistline. The Churidar style trousers have tight ankles but extra length in the leg to allow comfortable movement.

The sad thing is it is hard to find patterns for these! 

Here's a link I found to a pattern, but I haven't tried it.

  Look for vintage patterns. You can use dress patterns and only make them from the hips up for the top and you will get a wide variety of different styles and still have the coverage that is required for the job.
  You can also use light weight zip-up jackets if you use stiffer fabric eg http://www.flickr.com/photos/26168995@N00/2531896110/in/set-72157605182953598/ I used a heavier quilting flannel for this one and raised the neckline a little.
  Ebay is a great resource for vintage patterns plus if you do a search on the internet you will find a bunch of really great vintage pattern shops where you can get really great deals.
