Simplicity 1020- My Fabric Designs


Simplicity 1020 Scrub Top with knit side panels made from My Fabric Designs custom printed fabric and knit from Joann's

Scrub Top time again and we tried a different pattern.  This time one with some knit side panels and more shape


The first top I made Meredith was a McCall's pattern  and it was fine but Meredith didn't love the fit and the shape.  I told Meredith to do some more looking and she found Simplicity 1020 - a top that features knit side panels and neck bands,

This Simplicity pattern looked like something she would really like and something that would give a better fit.  A scrub top just pulls over your head but with these knit side panels the fit could be closer and less boxy.

My Fabric Designs kindly offered fabric for me to sew a garment and Meredith selected this geometric design.  I had ordered the swatches and we went with the basic combed cotton and it has a great feel.  A trip to Joann's and I had a good match for the knit.

I cut a size 12 for Meredith but sewed all the seams with a 3/4 inch seam allowance.  Meredith says it still feels a bit big so I will do a 10 next time and grading a bit smaller in the waist and shoulders.


 Meredith picked View C and I refer to this one the hidden pocket look.  Just look at the photo above and it is really hard to see the pockets but they are there. A nurse needs her pockets.

I love the neckband with the crossover in the front.  I did carefully mark the center front and stitch the stay stitching right at the seam allowance.  The Simplicity pattern also has you mark the center front for the knit neckband, which I did with a longer stitch.

I did not have enough of the My Fabric Designs fabric for the sleeves so I used the knit.  Meredith really liked the sleeves from the knit, felt it was so much easier to move.

I prewashed the  fabric from My Fabric Designs and it came out perfectly from the dryer.  The feel and hand of the fabric is so nice and it really sews beautifully.

Meredith wore this to work on Thursday and said she received many compliments and asked for it to be a size smaller.  I told her that is easy for me to do.


Disclosure I received this  fabric as an allowance from My Fabric Designs. I was able to select the fabric and what I wanted to create from the fabric.  The opinions of the fabric are all mine.

  3. I love this top...the design and the fabrics! My daughter is a nurse too and she'd love it. It sure looks a whole lot nicer than the scrub tops you buy.

  4. Try the knits from MyFabricDesigns. Can she wear an all-knit scrub top? For ASG, we had a fabric design contest and they printed our winners. I had to make garments in the winning design and wear it in a fashion show. I made a t-shirt from the knit and it is yummy to wear. Good weight and drape, easy to sew.
