Disabled grandson, need sewing ideas
I am currently trying to sew some stretchy pants for my grandson (9). I think it would help a lot if I had some kind of body mannequin, soft like a ragdoll but with a similar weight (65 lbs). He is confined to a wheelchair, bed, sofa, and is unable to situp on his own. He is "dead weight" - I hate these terms but not sure what else to use. My daughter tries to dress him as similar to a typical nine year old but it's becomming really hard to put on levi's and harder still to change a diaper while he is reclined in the wheelchair. Since he is tall but thin, and wearing a large diaper...most pants don't fit well. That's where I come in with stretchy polyester or fleece type pants. Do you have any ideas of how I could make a body "dummy" of his size/weight from about the waist down? Here is the closest I could find of something smaller but not sure how I would get enough weight distributed. Sorry this is so long. Any help or links would be appreciated.
