I absolutely love a frock.  Especially a retrocute frock.  Add in “wearable art” fabric and handmade with love, all by Australian designers and creators, and I’m in frock heaven.

KarlaCola designs have long been on my radar but whilst I can be an impulse shopper, I tend to mull over, followed quickly by obsessing over, designers and pieces.

I started off with a hairbow, because obvs, then purchased another hairbow and then an infinity scarf.  I knew a dress would one day be mine.  It was just a matter of deciding on the fabric and then the design.

When I spotted the Letitia Green Sodalite Sky fabric in a KarlaCola collaboration, I knew I had found my fabric! Next up, to choose a design.

I almost pressed Add to Cart on the jersey T shirt dress, customised with an elastic waist, when I spotted a variation on the smocked sundress, customised with little cap sleeves.  Perfectly retrocute, figure flattering and cotton fabric.  Sold!

As someone who is blessed (cursed?!) with EnormoBoobs, I was worried about fit.  I messaged Karla, the gorgeous girl behind KarlaCola, who reassured me she could make me the dress of my dreams.  I gave her my measurements, and she provided me with further details that I could check against a dress I owned.

Talk about customer service! I was so very impressed.

And then my dress and matchy matchy hairbow actually arrived.  I swooned over the fabric.  I mean, just look at it.

But I held up my dress and I have to admit, I worried about the fit.  It looked like it might be a bit snug.

All fears allayed once I slipped it on over my head, saw the exquisite fit and felt like a frock rocking goddess!

I don’t mean to be immodest, but check me out!  Such a flattering fit.

I love it so much that I’ve already ordered my next one.  Same cut but a gorgeous Maggi McDonald fabric named Laguna.  How could I resist!
