Make-Over with Jumiati in DON Magazine
The editor of the Dutch Magazine for people with paraplegia, Dwarslaesie Magazine Nederland DON, liked to bring in a new column in their Magazine.
We came to talk about Make overs, with people in wheelchairs. We had never seen any article concerning make overs with disable people before, so we liked the idea to be the first.
We arranged a feedback amongst the readers of the DON Magazine to reach models. Jumiati was one of them. She always have had difficulties to find the right clothes in the shops.
She founded herself confronted with a lot of problems with the fitting, so she was glad to joint this new project. We did a Make-Over with Jumiati.
She liked to combine black with red, so we choose a tricot fabric with red and black blocks.
This cheerful dress in supple tricot works wonders for her shape. It has a cascading neckline, bishop-style sleeves that slim your arms, and slanting pleats to slim and flatter the tummy area.
Two-part dress in black-brown-red-checked tricot fabric, consisting of a top and a skirt.
The top has a cascading neckline and three fixed pleats on the left shoulder that slant accross the front, hiding the tummy area.
It features a side zipper for easy dressing and undressing.
The sleeves in slight bishop-style are fuller at the upper arm and gather into a long cuff.
The tulip skirt has front panels following the curves of the seated body.
The slanted edgings make the upper side of the thighs look slimmer.
One edging conceals an open-ended zipper so the skirt can be folded open completely for easy handling.
The skirt falls just on the knee.
The front has been strengthened with stretch cotton, the fabric also used for the back (97%CO,3%Ly).
The back of is smooth and seamless.
It is cut high and elasticated for adjustability, while the front sits low and doesn’t gather in the groin area.
