  • Tip for Saving on Nursing Attire

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    Special thanks to Melody, who read my article on saving money on the Dollar Stretcher site and suggested this tip.

    To save money on nursing tops or dresses, sew your own clothes! This tip doesn’t really work for me personally because I can’t sew (I tried to learn and it was a disaster) and I don’t know anyone who can. But Melody recommends patterns by Elizabeth Lee Designs. From a quick look at their website, the patterns appear to be $10-15, which is less than the cost of an inexpensive nursing shirt. If you buy a reasonably priced material, you’ll be saving money from the second outfit on, and as Melody pointed out, you can use the patterns repeatedly.
