Authors comments
The user wanted a lightweight jacket for summer evenings. She tried many garments specially designed for people with disabilities, but did not find anything suitable. They are all sewn from too much fabric that prevents her from moving freely.
She developed this model and sewed it from fabric remnants. The cuffs keep out cold air and keep the sleeves out of the way when she drives a wheelchair.
