Considered Suit Alterations

Project type

Suit Alterations

Date

September 2023

Location

Hampshire, UK

A little while ago I had a message from a friend, asking whether I could make some alterations to a suit to make it more wheelchair friendly. Although not something I had done before, we worked together to decide how to make the suit fit better and more comfortably whilst in the wheelchair.

I worked on two different suits, shortening jackets, moving pockets, letting out trouser hems, extending the trouser rise and opening out the back seam, then adding elastic loops to help bring the waist back in without digging in at all.

This was a really interesting project and I am so glad that I was trusted with it, and that we managed to make these suits better fitting and much more wearable for the owner.
