My daughter was placed into a halo neck brace almost 3 weeks ago, and I desperately need some ideas for clothes for her to wear. She is 9 years old and will be returning to school soon. The brace is the type where there is a ring around the head and screws into the skull with rods coming down to a body brace. She will be in this brace for almost a year due to her need to have multiple operations to stabilise her neck.
I live near Brisbane, but I would appreciate any websites, photos, patterns, proto-types etc or suggestions of dressmakers etc that i could utilise to either make or modify clothing for her. The only one I have found so far was based in the USA. Or even suggestions where I could buy cheaper shirts, jumpers etc that won't cost the earth so when I cut them up to modify them around a brace I am not taking out a second mortgage!
Hoping for some speedy replies!
ETA - I can sew reasonably well, just concerned about the time frame to make them
