I also dislike the disposable cap cos it makes my hair go yucky and sweaty. (its like 36deg Celsius on a good day in theatre. before the operating lights are switched on.)
I googled until I thought my fingers were going to drop off looking for a free pattern and then I came across this awesome page: Chez Vies
This lady made a beautifully simple pattern for what she calls a hijab inner but what I've used as a scrub cap.
It took me 20minutes - and I even took the time to press the tie bands.
|me having a really blotchy skin day!|
and obviously hair will be tucked in when in theatre
|back view - the lumpy bit is my pony tail tucked into the cap|
I found the printed cotton in my stash so this whole thing cost me nothing! :)
This shwe shwe fabric is quite fashionable locally so doctors - eat your hearts out!
