I’ve been tired and busy. I’m working on my RN degree while working full-time as an LPN in a skilled nursing unit. Actually, I’m exhausted. I haven’t had the energy to make anything lately. It’s a triumph that I turned on the sewing machine and made this scrub top. Now I feel like making stuff all the time again. I’ve got a million ideas squirming around in my head. Sometimes abstinence makes the heart grow fonder.
I used New Look 6876 to make this top. I altered the bodice to be surplice. I plan on using this pattern again for scrubs. The only problem is that this top is huge. If you have any geeky fabric ideas, please send me a link.
I know it’s popular to trash nurses for wearing cartoon scrubs, but if you’ve never spent 40 hours a week keeping 15 people alive, please don’t judge.
If you’ve never seen what kind of boogers come out of a trach, trust me that I need something fun to brighten my day.
If you’ve never cleaned a wound so foul that you could smell it in your hair after a shower, then please give me a break about my clothing.
If you’ve never spilled colostomy juice on your shoes, you get the idea…
Nurses put up with a lot of shit–sometimes literally–so please don’t pick on our scrubs.
