A wrap dress is a classic piece in every woman’s closet. I recently had the chance to have one custom made! This was a dream come true for me, because I have always wanted to be a part of the design process. Although I have had clothing altered before, I never had much say in how I wanted things to look until now. The site eShakti generously offered me the opportunity to do just that. The process was so fun and I ended up with an incredible dress that feels like it was made for me. Wait… it was!
The style I chose was a flutter sleeve cotton knit wrap dress, although you’d never be able to tell because I chose to remove the flutter sleeves and go with cap sleeves. I thought it would give it a cleaner line at the top of the dress so that the bottom flared skirt could shine. I was happy with that choice!
Being 5’9″ I have difficulty finding dresses the right length for my long legs. They never seem to hit where I want them, but eShakti allowed me to have it exactly how I wanted it. I gave them my measurements and told them exactly where I wanted the dress to hit. I was very impressed with the number of options I could have for the dress length all the way from mini to ankle length. I chose to customize the dress to hit just above the knee.
Although I had the opportunity to remove the pockets I chose to keep them. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?!
And to wrap things up (pun intended), I love any company with a great return policy, especially when making online purchases. Even though it’s custom made, if you don’t like it (although I guarantee you will) they will refund you and give you another chance to get it right! How awesome is that?!
