I love to sew, and I really want to sew clothes that I get to wear, but really?! Scrubs?!
I want to sew dresses! And tops, and skirts, and all sorts of pretty things! ( Can you just hear me throwing a three-year-old tantrum and stomping my foot indignantly on the ground? Because in my head, that is totally what I'm doing right now!)
Now, I know that I could sew scrubs. Pretty easily in fact, but there is also the problem of me being really, really picky about my scrubs. The fabric has to be just right, and then there are the pockets, and the fit, and everything! The scrub patterns that you can find in the store all kind of suck.
I know, I need to just take one of my favorite pairs of scrubs and tear them apart and use the for a pattern, but I can't bring myself to do it yet, plus, does anyone know what type of fabric they use?! It's not regular cotton, I swear. I just don't know what it is. It's thicker, and possibly has some sort of stain treatment or something. I don't know, maybe I'm imagining things. But the fabric feels different.
So, am I the only one with this problem? Am I the only one who doesn't have the opportunity to wear cute clothes every day (or night in my case) for work? I really want to work on a wardrobe for myself, but where do I draw the line at sewing things that aren't practical?
