This is the first and last time this season you’ll be seeing this chambray dress. I ordered it from eShakti in the spring. It’s served me well through early fall, but I personally feel that this particular chambray is too lightweight for winter. I don’t think it would be a great choice to wear with tights (the dress would stick to them) although it would work with a blazer and a fun scarf in a warmer climate.
I had this dress made to measure for an extra fee. I do love it, but it didn’t turn out exactly right. I sent my chest measurement one inch larger than my actual measurement as this fabric has no stretch. I like having a looser fit through the bust when I wear fabrics without any give. The extra inch ended up being applied to the waist measurement, which I’ve noted is a very common complaint about the custom sized clothing from eShakti. It would have been a perfect fit with the extra inch in the chest. The waist is very loose, so I’m thinking of having it taken in for next year, which is something I would have liked to avoid with a custom size.

Are you transitioning to your fall wardrobe yet? I’ll be sad to see summer go, but I do love fall clothing. Bring on the outerwear!
