Special Notes

The fabric used in our doctor gown is ideal in weight and comfort. Unlike doctors gowns of the past which were heavy and uncomfortable, we have designed this gown with the comfort of the wearer as a prime consideration. In the past, the sleeve bars were hand sewn to the sleeve.  Although hand sewing is an advantage for some types of garments, this is not the case for attaching the sleeve bars. Hand sewing is not very strong and is often the first thing to fail in a sewn garment. It is also costly and difficult to have done well.


We have done extensive testing on improving the method of attaching the bars to the sleeve.  We have found that fusing the velvet bars to the fabric gives the most satisfactory results. 


Fusing should not be confused with gluing. The fusing process actually bonds the genuine velvet to the fabric using heat and pressure.   It is a permanent bond and cannot be removed without an exceptional force, which would actually pull the genuine velvet pile apart. Fusing, although new to the manufacture of gowns, is not a new process. It has been in use for over 40 years in different forms.  The suits used in space travel are fused together. In the case of our doctors gown, it gives the velvet a better appearance by having it sit on top of the fabric, that is it has more relief or 3 dimensional effect.
