Description of the content of this part of the web site
We who use wheelchairs know how hard it is to find good looking and well fitted clothes. Skirts are too short at the back. Pants are too tight in the crotch. The jacket travels forward with every move until the shoulder pads form extra boobs. It is not funny!
And then there are the few selling adapted clothes. A couple of them actually have clothes that look okay – if the style fits you and you can afford them.
It is not as complicated as you think to sew yourself. And when you have your “own” pattern you can create any combination or variation you want. Fabric in different material, structure and colour totally change the look of a garment. Pockets, frills do the same. Skirts can be long or short, pants can become shorts and the jacket sleeves have wristbands.
With you “own” pattern you can ask a seamstress to sew that special garment for that special occasion – maybe a white two-piece suit for graduation. Or find the tailor who makes motorcycle clothes and order that leather jacket everyone will envy.
