DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To adapt clothing for easier dressing for seniors or individuals with arthritis or fine motor, grasping, neurological, or upper extremity disabilities. This illustrated article, included in a chapter entitled "Bedroom & Getting Dressed," discusses ways in which sew-on Velcro tape can be used to modify clothing. Buttons can be replaced with Velcro, neck holes can be enlarged and the seams closed with Velcro, and Velcro can be sewn next to the zippers on pants, skirts, and jackets to eliminate the need to use the zipper. Each suggested modification includes instructions for how to accomplish it. TITLE: Velcro to Fasten Your Garments.
