Behold the beauty of the fold!

We designed this art-inspired origami birds dress to embrace the beauty of the fold. In addition to being an ingenious art form requiring an incredible amount of creativity and vision, there have been numerous uses of origami concepts throughout STEM fields - such as life-saving cardiac stents. Time & time again, we see the application of the Arts in STEM leading to amazing innovations. We decided to depict the delicate simplicity of origami birds in this vivacious light pink dress. The beauty of this dress truly is threefold!

Fantastic

The fabric was heavier than I expected, the sleeves and overall dress are longer than I thought, and the pink darker than I thought (more like the picture with the woman and girl than just the woman), but also the cut is WAY more flattering than I'd feared and I'm in love with this dress. I'll admit I have to have excellent posture not to look odd, given how the gathered fabric hangs at the waist, but I see that as a plus. By the end of the day, I actually felt confidently "pretty" in a dress, something that has honestly never happened to me in my life. I measured myself with a measuring tape, and the size chart is dead-on true to size, so there's that too.

I almost didn't purchase this dress, but I am so glad I did!

I couldn't tell from the pictures if this dress would be the pale pink or the deeper one, and I was also worried that this would be a babydoll dress that was too short to wear without leggings. The dress is the darker tone, the color of the picture with the woman and the child, and the length? To my knees, maybe even mid-knee, and I am 5'7". The cut is incredibly flattering, giving my cleavage some oomph without looking like Elvira, and the empire waist is very flattering on a mom body with some pooch. I have a 39" bust, and the size 10 fits perfectly. This dress is slightly tighter than my other Svaha size 10s, but this cotton has less give to it than the Constellations, Gears or DNA styles. If you're worried, size up, but if you are under 39" in the bust, this should be perfect. This is by far my favorite cut of the Svaha range I've tried. It is incredibly flattering. Who knew?

Not my fave

The dress is lovely and very fun. However, for me, the cut was not too flattering and it is not my favourite of the Svaha dresses I have.

I love this dress. I was worried about buying the empire cut. I needed a 1X and I was worried the style would make me look pregnant. Not at all. Very flattering and SO COMFORTABLE! I am an art teacher at an elementary and I received compliments from staff, parents and students all day. And of course- pockets! Got to love when a dress has pockets!

First day I wore this dress I got two compliments. One from the bartender (OK, you might expect a compliment from a bartender as that is part of their business) and one from a random woman on the sidewalk next to me (the best kind of compliment on clothes cause you know it is real). So comfortable to wear and the pockets are substantial both in that they fit an iphone6 and that having something that weighty in the pocket doesn't make the dress hang funny. Washes well. I take it out of the dryer right at the end of the cycle and hang it up and so far no wrinkles. I think the neckline is perfect as I prefer a deeper V as I think it is more flattering on my plus-size/DDD frame but some women might find the v-neck a little low. For me it is the perfect summer dress: easy to wear, easy to wash, makes me happy cause I feel I look great.
