The wearable electronic devices are such devices worn by a person as un-obstructively as clothing to provide intelligent assistance. In addition, a wearable antenna is meant to be a part of the clothing used for communication purposes such as tracking, navigation, mobile computing and public safety. On the other hand, Ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna is an emerging technology that promises high speed data transmission at low cost for short-range of communication. In this paper, a modified UWB circular patch antenna with partial ground plane is fabricated and presented. The substrate of the designed antenna is made from jeans fabric while the radiating element and ground plane are made from copper tape. A second layer of jeans textile was placed on the top of the microstrip line to hide the feeding on the clothing. The operating frequency of this design is between 2 GHz and 14 GHz. Measured results are compared with simulations, and good agreement was observed.
