It was actually difficult to pick a dress from the array of pretty, vintage-inspired options. I finally settled on this blue floral number. My husband helped me take my measurements. Talk about the blind leading the blind. I thought the dress would end up being warped as a result of our poor measuring skills. Luckily, not so. My custom-made dress arrived within a week and turned out to be a perfect fit.
Besides producing clothing (not just dresses) from your custom measurements, eShakti also allows you to make changes to the style of the garment - sleeve length, the shape of the neckline, skirt length and more. When I reviewed the options, I noted that you could have the dress made without pockets. I thought that option was a general one and didn't apply to the dress I selected. As you can see from my hand, above, I was wrong.
One of the loveliest features of the dress is the vibrant yellow lining. It also has snaps at the shoulders to hold your bra straps in place.
I want to get a little yellow sweater to put over it. For the time being, I have this neutral cardi.
By the way, it was near impossible to take a photo without Jolene the beagle mix getting into it. It was kind of like trying to exercise on the floor. (If you have a dog, you know what I'm talking about.)
That first shot was not planned that way, with the dog posing perfectly, although I did find that my husband began to focus more on the dog than me.
This is my official photographer though. She took the second shot. She was more pleasant to work with too. She posed me, encouraged me and fed me with compliments about how nice I looked. Not like Mr. "Let's get this over with."
