--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Pants have a separate flap in the back to make dressing in a wheelchair easier and to help with toileting. Cut the seat from the pants beginning 1 1/2 inches from the side seam and cutting in a U-shape to 4 inches above the crotch or 18 inches below the waist. Using similar fabric and the cutout portion of the garment as a pattern cut the seat flap so it is wide enough to reach the side seam on each side. construct the back flap the same as the back of a pair of pants with a center seam and back pockets. Add elastic at waist and a velcro or other closure. Includes picture. SKILLS REQUIRED: sewing. AUTHOR: Kernaleguen, A. TITLE: Clothing Designs for the Handicapped.
