spiffed up scrubs

i must forewarn that these photos are of poor quality but hopefully the idea will still be apparent.

the only crafting i have been doing as of late is out of necessity. Dixie Doll Kat's work has decided to have everyone wear scrubs. Since she has a tattoo ( seen here) on her upper chest that they don't take kindly to i altered her tops as seen below...



(we like this one because the fabric print is of tattoos! yeah, that's right... sticking it to the man!)


The low down:
i added pockets on a couple of them or did pocket detailing along with making a little covering for her tattoo. i think it's a nice alternative to buying prefab expensive patterned tops. the plain colors are cheaper and Kat got to pick out what fabrics she wanted for the spiffing. Also doing just alternations didn't take as long as it would to have made the entire top.

i have 2 more tops to go which i'll put up in this post when done.

thank you eviedee for the kind comment you left, it came at a time i needed it.

I love this idea! Scrubs are my favorite 'loungewear,' but you're right; the cute patterned tops are expensive. They are ususally about 3x the price of the plain solid colors.

I will definitely be copy-catting your idea when it's time to replace my Loungies.

Awww, what a nice friend you are! My husband is covered with ink and works for one of the most conservative companies in America, so we know a bit about being creative with covering up! Great tattoo fabric by the way!

These scrubs are so awesome! I wish that I had thought of that when I had to wear them. I am glad that my gushing was appreciated! :)
