Now isolation can be washed and reusable, finish neck and bottom of the gown.
Longer sleeves (3 inches longer), alternative sleeve design
Belt placement location, 17 inches from neck drop on front panel
Also I recommend the use of twill tape instead of velcro for the back closure. Twill tape can be also used to substitute self-belt.
If you do not have elastic for the wrists, you may use ribbon that could be tied or ribbed knit cuff material. Use elastic hair ties or use rib knit from old sweatshirt, socks or tee shirt.
Our production ready file including larger size will be out next week as a separate downloadable item.
Fashion Girls reverse-engineered a pattern based on HALYARD* AAMI Level 2 Over-The-Head Isolation Gown and Elastic Cuffs (a sample provided from UCLA doctor / confirmed also by Mt. Sinai ER doctor in NY). This is SIZE LARGE, but I was advised that the sleeve should be longer and length should be adjusted for a taller / larger person (lengthen the body to 50” and the sleeve to 27”). So the current pattern reflects this.

CDC now advises "shift gown use towards cloth isolation gowns."Reusable (i.e., washable) gowns are typically made of polyester or polyester-cotton fabrics. Gowns made of these fabrics can be safely laundered according to routine procedures and reused. Care should be taken to ensure that HCP do not touch outer surfaces of the gown during care. --CDC
