ok so i've hardly seen ANY scrub tops on craftster... unless i'm missing them.. Does anyone else make these?!  I work at a vet's office, and  I love making my own tops, they are so much CHEAPER than ordering from any catalog (NO SHIPPING $$) and i can make them fit me!

I've had TONS of comments on them at work! Everyone is telling me i should sell them... hmmm I was thinking maybe charging $10 -if they provide the fabric... sound good? Around 20$ if i provide fabric?
 It takes me about an hour and a half to make one...  What do you all think?  Grin

Your tops look great! What pattern do you use? I have a couple of patterns, but haven't been brave enough to take the plunge.  Do you make scrub pants as well? Great job!!

I also work in healthcare and make my own scrubs.  The materials you used are just darling.  I would charge a little more than 10$ to make it (perhaps 15$) if they provide the material.  Have the customer also pick out the thread they would like used on the outfit.  If you have to do the shopping and buy everything, charge 25$ to help with the cost of gas and your time.  Hope that helps.  Smiley

I used to make my own scrubs! I am now a full time stay at home mum though  Tongue haha! But I wouldn't post mine on her b/c they are just plain blah colors because we weren't allowed to wear anything that was distracting or that could clash Tongue Pooh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great job BTW and I would say 15 and 25 is dead on!
