Happy Birthday To Me eShakti Style

One of the reasons I started sewing was because it was too hard to find clothes to fit my body after having children. As much as I love making new clothes, sometimes I just don’t feel like it. For my birthday this year, I ordered a piece from eShakti and now I’m questioning whether or not I need to feel pressed to sew for myself. This kimono-sleeved jumpsuit is EVERYTHING!!!

Ordering was so easy. I just took my measurements, plugged them in and my jumpsuit arrived a week later. When there was a question about my sizing, they shot me an email to clarify. And now I want to live in this jumpsuit because, well, see number 4. Happy birthday to me!
