Summer Garden Stroll In A Custom Retro eShakti Design
What a treat! Finding designs that will fit my short torso, wide hips and extra wide – but short – arms perfectly is a seldom find. Custom pieces are often too expensive for this single Mama to splurge in and finding eShakti has been a treat!
100’s of designs to fit just about any style is to be had. Their standard sizing rang from 0-36W. Many of them offer customized, sleeves, neck line and length. You can even opt out of having pockets in your pieces, which I personal LOVE to have to tuck my phone and keys in, but prefer no pockets if I want a fitted look. You can also sen your exact measurements and have an even more perfect fit – as I did.
My arms are extra beefy and since this dress was on sale for UNDER $40 I decided to customize the sleeves and length to my 5’0 height. When opting for pockets I like to have space on my skirts/hips for a more flowing bottom and space to tuck my items in to them.
This design is a jersey knit that makes it comfortable and perfect for a stroll in the hidden urban gardens I find myself getting lost in Downtown Long Beach. The sheath cut with the detailed bodice and skirt detail is lovely and the royal blue is gorgeous. The “Elastic Smocked Center Back Waist” is a design detail that I search for in pieces. It gives you a more precise fit and allows for movement in my busy day as a Mommy, Bookkeeper and during my humanitarian work filling lunch bags with food to give out to the homeless – yes, I’m quite the Wonder Woman *wink!*
Measurments: 48 – 44 – 54 Height: 5’0
I ordered the 2X(22W) from their chart but for a fitted look without pockets I’d recommend the 1X(18W) from their chart. Have a seamstress take your measurements with the undergarments you will normally wear under these pieces and include them in your order details. eShakit will send you a measuring chart if you need help on how to take them.

When ordering: Give yourself time for sewing and shipping. It can take from 2-6 weeks at times depending on the style and international shipping time. Be patient and you won’t be disappointed.
I own a few pieces that I’m happy to give input on. Just leave a comment or send me an email.

Do you love it as much as I do? How would you style it? Do let me know.
I would add a pearl necklace and retro heels for a night out. Have some fun with Betty Bangs or a few victory roles!
