|DH's Christmas gift last year.|
- Make the body roomy. The patient will probably have an attachment to their body.
- Make the sleeves roomy and end the sleeve above the elbow. The patient may need to have their blood taken regularly.
- Ensure it is long enough to overcome any hospital draughts.
- Use external pockets because the patient will need pockets for their valuables.
- Use fabric that feels soft. The patient may have wounds that are sensitive.
- Secure the belt to the back. Belts often get lost in an industrial washroom.
- Use a dark fabric or a fabric that doesn't show stains.
|Front view - I know this is sloppy looking but it's soft, smooth and comfortable.|
- I've lengthened the body length by 8cm
- Overlocked the seams and hems
- Added interfacing on the collar pieces
- Sewn the tie to the back of the bathrobe
- And let's face it, made the largest size to cover any patient's needs.
|There's no external opening, unlike hospital gowns.|
|This print hides any markings, stains and creases.|
PS: A note to Tigergirl, TJ and SarahLizSewStyle, the Enid shift dress with lace is being tweaked for fit and the 'reveal' - Squeal!
