Can you modify your clothing to make it work for you?

Get Independent

There are many clever ways you can adapt your clothing so it is easier and more convenient to get on and off:

Sew cuff buttons on with elastic thread; keep them buttoned all the time and simply slide your hand through.

Remove buttons from the cuff or front of a blouse or shirt, and sew the button to the closed buttonhole borders. Sew Velcro on the two sides and press to close.

Attach a ring or loop to the zipper tab so it's easier to catch with fingers or a dressing aid.
