I LOVE Svaha

I just wore this dress for the first time today. I had an important presentation to do and thought this would give me a confidence boost. It fit like a dream and I got many compliments on it. This is my third dress from the site and every one has received raves and requests for where I got it. I'm a confirmed repeat customer.

Very cute and classy dress, well made and true to size

The fabric is very soft and it was lighter than I expected -- I was afraid it would be too warm for Summer but it's a nice weight. The skirt fabric has a little more body than the bodice, I think due to the ink of the print, so it has a nice drape. The cut is very flattering, slimming and easy to wear -- love the pockets. It is very true to size. I'm a size 12 in most dress manufacturers (like Calvin Klein or Gabby Skye) with measurements of 42" - 33" - 41", somewhat full busted and short waisted and 5' 5" tall. I got the size 12 and it fits nicely. Length is fine, just slightly below the kneecap. Normally I would shorten a dress like this a little (I like to show my legs) but this is so graceful at that length and the print being the full height of three bookshelves is attractive so I will leave it as it is. I already had a necklace of bright colored and black wooden and gold beads that are the same colors as the skirt which looks great with it. The neckline is nicely shaped for showing off jewelry. I'm wearing it to my writing group get together tomorrow -- several of my friends there teach writing and literature and will probably want to know where they can get the dress for themselves! I may buy another Svaha dress eventually but at the moment they are out of my size in a couple that interest me so I'll wait on that.

Avid bibliophile's dream dress!

I emailed and asked about sizing since I wear a 12 on top but an 8 on the bottom. The 12 was a perfect fit. The dress is really comfortable and the pockets pushed the whole thing over the top. I will definitely buy another Svaha dress or skirt.

Love Svaha!

So, to be perfectly fair, I haven't actually worn this dress, but it looks AMAZING! and I love everything that I've bought from Svaha before. The dress looks and feels amazing and I can't wait for it to be cool enough to wear!

Sizing runs large

It's a sweet design (although the skirt may need a slip). I ordered according to the sizing guide and ordered a size 8 (I normally wear a 6 with 35-28-38 measurements). I should've ordered according to what I normally wear and not the sizing guide because it was way too large. Too bad I have to pay for shipping on the return. Not sure if one size down will do it, so to avoid having to pay for shipping another time, I think I'll have to skip the exchange. Too bad because I was so excited to have a book dress!
