Clothes for human life function as self-protection, communication, and representation of who the wearer is. Before representing oneself, the main thing is that clothing must have functional comfort. One part of society that needs available clothing is people with disabilities. The subjects in this study were people with moderate spastic Cerebral Palsy (CP). Based on their characteristics, people with average spastic CP usually have limitations in carrying out activities. The regulations they have will affect their daily activities, one of which is the activity of dressing. So adaptive clothing is needed to support the characteristics of people with moderate spastic CP disabilities. This study aims to facilitate the actions of people with moderate spastic CP disabilities—data collection in this study by observation and in-depth interviews on the subject. In addition to interview data, researchers recorded pictures and videos of the dressing process on the upper clothing types, namely shirts, and t-shirts. The study's results showed that the design of adaptive clothing facilitates activities for people with moderate spastic Cerebral Palsy disabilities.
