SCRUBS REFASHION: LOCKWOOD OCTOBER

MY MAROON SCRUBS

MY MAROON SCRUBS

I didn’t face too many issue refashioning a pair of maroon scrubs into a skirt (nickname: Lockwood October). I cut the scrub pants right above the crotch area and the scrub top right below the armpit areas. Then I pinned and folded (to make pleats) the scrub top to the bottom of the waist band area and then sewed the two pieces together. I absolutely love this super easy refashion because the skirt fits perfectly and the length is just right. Again, the only issue I had was the seam connecting the two pieces.

THE ALMOST FINISHED SKIRT

Luckily, I had some matching scrap fabric that matched perfectly. What I love most about the scrap fabric are the small spots of black, white, and maroon. Now, I can wear either a black or white shirt with the skirt. And the maroon spots pair well with the skirt, tying all the colors together. My only concern was how wide I should make the strip of scrap fabric — wide or narrow or somewhere in between? I finally decided on a wide strip and pinned the scrap fabric over the ugly seam.

NICKNAME: LOCKWOOD OCTOBER

I’m pretty pleased with the simple process of turning a pair of scrubs into a cute and fun skirt. I think my favorite parts of the skirt are the two side seams from the scrap fabric strip. I’m not sure why I’m so fascinated and proud of myself for sewing a straight stitch to connect the fabric. Yes, I know I’m a little weird. Again, I’m please the result of the new skirt. If I had known how easy the refashion was I would’ve attempted the project in the beginning of the summer. Well, now I know.
