Pattern Measurements for Custom Wheelchair Shorts
Measurements are required for all new clients. Current clients only need to email changes from current measurements on file.
NEW CLIENTS: All new clients will be charged a one time service fee of $75 for the drafting of your personal custom pattern. After submitting measurements, you will need to order one pair of pants only for your first order. We will make your order using your newly drafted pattern. Once you receive your order, if adjustments are needed, just ship them back to us and we will make adjustments or remake pants if needed at no additional charge to you. Your pattern will be altered or remade as well, again at no additional charge to you. We will ship your altered pants to you free of charge. You may then order any additional pants at your convenience.
It is imperative that measurements are taken exactly as stated in our instructions in order to obtain the best results. All patterns will remain the property of Anitavee's Adaptive Apparel.
