Carin Rodebjer has a Cinderella-from-the-street story. She was spotted wearing her own creations on the sidewalks of Manhattan and plucked from hand tailoring clothes in her Lower East Side Apartment to selling her stuff retail.

2:30 Decide to bag the 3 PM show due to time constraints.

2:47 Screw it! These things never start on time.

2:50 The cabbie did not take kindly to my “…and step on it!” routine.

The attention to custom work has not been lost since Rodebjer went pret-a-porter. The white overcoats were blindingly beautiful. The high empire waists and voluminous knee length dresses would look great on my regular gal body. And I can keep up a pair of seamed hose on my flesh and bones.

Rodebjer halter dress We found Rodebjer online and on sale at testimoboutique.com. The elegant tailoring of the halter dresses give the simple pieces such versatility that you can choose your shoe to change up the style and no one will know it’s the same dress.
