No-Sew Doctor Lab Coat

My boys love to engage in pretend play, and recently they decided to set up a teddy bear clinic in our living room.  We needed a quick doctor lab coat costume, so I came up with this simple no-sew version.


Isn't it cute?  I started with an inexpensive (adult) white t-shirt.


Then, I used a sharpie to draw a red cross onto the t-shirt.


Finally, I used sharp fabric scissors to cut straight up the middle of the shirt.


My boys had a great time playing "doctor" with all of their stuffed animals.  Such a great way to spend an afternoon, don't you think?  Would your little ones love this "no-sew" doctor lab coat?

  1. Ha! So simple and clever!

    Totally going to do this. My toddler is always playing "doctor".

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  2. Does it fray or fall apart easily? I am thinking of making these for my daughter's birthday party and don't want them falling apart right away.

    1. It may depend on the t-shirt, but mine is still fine, and I've had it for a couple of years.

  6. Pure Genius! My son wanted to dress up as a doctor for his career day at school. You just saved me time and money from going out and buying a doctor costume!
