Custom tailored skirt for Susanne, who uses a wheelchair.

Custom tailored skirt with high back

Custom tailored skirt with high back

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.

Users 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.

Tip for persons with poor hand function: use iron-on tape for hems; no pins needed. (Idea: Meagan, Fashion Freaks)
