Description
Trousers in soft fabric sewn so that they are higher in back and slightly lower in front.

The user started with an ordinary trouser pattern. The back can be raised in various ways:
– insert an extra wedge-shaped piece of fabric in the center of the back (top edge is straight), see photo 2.
– add an extra wedge-shaped piece of fabric to the top of the back (top edge is curved), see photos 3 and 5.

Users comments
Ordinary trousers are too short in the back when sitting. The user looked for suitable trousers for a long time. She couldn’t find anything that fit. Even clothes specially designed for people who use wheelchairs were too large and had too much unnecessary fabric.
She designed this model and is very pleased with it. She has sewn trousers in different fabrics and colors, suitable for different occasions.
