Adding a Velcro Fastener to Pants – No More Buttons!

Children and adults with hemiplegia or hemiplegic cerebral palsy may have difficulty fastening pants with one hand. Below you’ll find an easy method of replacing the button with velcro. The final photo, which we do not have, would show the button sewn on the outside of the jeans, on top of the original button hole.

Remove button and sew to outside of pants. Position it where the button would show if pants were buttoned. If jeans have a snap, you may leave snaps in place. Purchase and sew on commercial grade Velcro.
