I can be really picky about clothes. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of times where I will walk into a store and find all sorts of new clothes to buy, but there are other times where I spend months searching for the perfect piece. I can’t help it, I just really like when something is exactly right. And it can be really tough sometimes to find just what I want. Not only do I want it to be the style that I’m looking for, but it also has to fit just right and be really comfortable to wear. It can be really tricky! That’s why I love the idea of custom clothing.
I know how to sew, and I love making clothes for myself, but it’s time consuming! And it can be difficult, and things don’t always turn out exactly how I want them to. So even though I can make my own clothes, sometimes it’s just easier to buy the things I want! That’s why I love the idea of eShakti. It’s a clothing store that allows you to customize their pieces so you get exactly what you want. And even better, you can have everything customized to your measurements so it fits just right. I had the opportunity to work with them in the past and I loved the entire process. I loved being able to change collars and sleeve lengths and deciding if wanted pockets in my dress or not. And I ended up with a dress that fit perfectly (which is really hard to find, especially because I’m tall). It was a really fun process but it was a little hard to figure out exactly how the dress would turn out as I was customizing it. That’s why I was so excited to hear about their new eShakti FX program. It’s a new feature on their site that allows you to see how the piece will look with all of your edits.
eShakti FX allows you to make a ton of changes to a piece of clothing and see what it will look like. You can take one dress and get 100 different styles from it, and you can see each one during the process. It definitely makes creating custom clothing a whole lot easier!
I had a lot of fun playing around with different styles on their website (they have so many to choose from!). This pretty burgundy dress started out with a high neckline, long skirt, and elbow length sleeves but I think it looks just as pretty with a boatneck, shorter skirt, and no sleeves. Longer sleeves make this great in the winter and short sleeves and a mini length makes it great for parties.
Or what about this fun collared dress? I’ve been wanting a dress like this for awhile but it’s been impossible to find just what I’m looking for. Most have been too short or the sleeves haven’t been right. I love how I can make this one longer and add 3/4 sleeves. I also think it looks cute with shorter sleeves and a round collar or longer sleeves, a shorter skirt, and a Peter Pan collar.
Overall, I am loving the new eShakti FX feature. It’s so fun to be able to “design” my own pieces of clothing and I love how you can compare different options during the process. Plus, it’s great knowing that the end product is going to fit perfectly!
