Description of the jacket

This jacket pattern is relatively easy to sew. In general, it is longer in back and shorter in front. It has a zip up front. The seams inserting the sleeves into the body of the jacket are positioned at the outer side of the shoulder, which gives a slight increased space for mobility. You also have some alternative designs to choose from. The pattern includes facing and can be lined or left un-lined.

Below is a drawing of the jacket in basic model with straight sleeves and collar. You can sew it with or without wristband.

Depending on how well-fitted you want to sew the jacket and what suits your seating position and manner of pushing wheelchair, you might want curved sleeves. The curved shape in the sleeves is created by a curving extra seam at the back side of each sleeve.

The example above also shows a curved back piece, which creates a crescent shaped backline over the shoulder area, viewed from behind. You create this through an extra curved seam in the middle of the back piece. A curved back can be useful if you sit slightly bended forward in the wheelchair.
