Custom tailored skirt

Custom tailored skirt for Susanne, who uses a wheelchair.

Description
The skirt is sewn according to a custom fitted pattern. It is higher in back and fits when sitting. The zipper opens and closes using a fabric loop in matching colors. Half of the length of the front of the skirt is pleated. The back features sewn-in pleats with elastic fabric.

Authors comments
The skirt fits well. The elastic inserts in back prevent the skirt from becoming too tight. Only half the length of the skirt is pleated, so the skirt fits nicely while giving the impression of being pleated.
