Nursing uniforms have changed over the years. Today almost all nurses wear scrubs which can be found in all kinds of patterns and sizes. Scrubs can also be worn after the costume occasion. But, Halloween is a great time to not only introduce your children to various professions. You can use Halloween to show the kids what happened in the past. A white nurses uniform is an easy costume to create. Being budget conscious, a nurse's costume is a great alternative, as they can be used as an outfit or pajamas. By using white fabric, you make sure your children will be seen on dark streets while trick or treating.
Today's nurses wear scrubs and these are available in children's and adult sizes at box stores and many large pharmacies. There is also a lab jacket pattern available for a more classic nurse costume.
Top off the costume with white shoes. Old, play sneakers can be spray painted white, for a very economical solution.
A classic white nurses uniform can be made with almost any white outfit. A classic blouse can be lengthened for a child's dress. Later you can add trim to the dress for it to be used everyday or shorten it for a white blouse. A white blouse and a simple white skirt is another option, which can be used again to increase a child's wardrobe. By making a white blouse for Halloween, you are prepared for the near future Holiday concerts and events, that require a white top and dark pants or skirt.
In a real pinch, look for a white blouse or dress shirt at you local thrift store and cinch it with a belt.
Not many of today's nurses seem to wear their nurses cap, but Halloween is a time to over emphasis a costume and visit the past with historical points. Make your own Nurses cap, will give you a full size pattern and directions for making a classic nurses cap.
Above all use your imagination! Halloween is a great time to experiment and add to your sewing skills!
