Blouses in simple patterns - appropriate for wheelchair users

Blouses are longer in the back so they stay covering the back. The front can vary in length, depending on taste. Since the user slumps over when sitting the blouses are tailored to her figure, flared and wide across the stomach.

Authors comments
Purchased blouses are often too wide at the neckline and easily slide up and tighten around the throat. They are often too tight across the stomach. The user has searched for appropriate blouses for a long time. Depending on the latest styles she only finds something appropriate occasionally, see related tip.
So she developed these models adapted to her figure and is extremely satisfied with them.
The pattern for her blouse in photos 1 and 2 is taken from a Viking exhibition. It has straight pieces in the front and rear, a gusset on the sides, also the sleeves are completely straight, see photo 2.

Previously she also sewed long-sleeved blouses, but since holes easily form at the elbows she now wears short-sleeves blouses over a T-shirt.
