I love dresses! I have an entire Pinterest style board dedicated solely to beautiful dresses. Sometimes I think that if I owned enough, I would wear a dress everyday! A couple years ago, I set out on a quest to increase the number of work dresses I own. When I looked at the dresses already in my closet, almost all of them were sleeveless or cap sleeve. So I decided to try to buy more dresses with a short to 3/4 length sleeve length that I could wear more easily across different seasons. I found tons of dresses I loved with cap sleeves or sleeveless, but short and 3/4 length sleeves was not so easy. Then I found eShakti, an online boutique that allows you to customize dresses to fit your needs. Depending on the dress you select, you can change the sleeve, neckline, and length. Warning, you will spend hours on this site playing with all the options! You can also enter your measurements to have the clothes made just for you. My alterations lady is not going to be happy, but I’m thrilled to find a website with such a cool customization feature. The dress in today’s post, originally started as a cap sleeve, below the knee dress. I loved the color and style of the dress (and that it has pockets!!!), so I decided to try out the customization feature and order it with an elbow length sleeve. But I just couldn’t stop there. I’m on the petite side, and prefer dresses that are just above the knee, so I also decided to change the length of the dress to above the knee. I am really pleased with the result, a gorgeous work dress with a shorter sleeve. Exactly what I have spent months trying to find, delivered to my front door about a week after placing my customized order.
