Closet Opening

I have two problems with my closet door opening.
openign is 22" which is not standard size. Is there any way around it, or I will have to order custom made doors.

One wall is not straight, it appears that opening on top ois 3/4 inch wider than on bottom. Is there a fix for it, or i will have to take wall down.

Thank you

Flat slab hollow core doors can be cut to size fairly easily, considerably cheaper than custom doors. If you want raised panel doors, that gets more difficult, although you probably can cut 1" off each side. Might be easier to redo the closet opening, which would allow you to correct the wall misalignment???

Use the opening you have as a rough opening and install a smaller pre hung unit.
