Books Mandala Katherine Dress



This dress is a real page turner!

We’ve noticed a pattern with our fans - you keep circling back to see what’s new. Let the balance be restored when you center your attention with our newest reading-inspired design! The word mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." They have a concentric structure that symbolize unity and harmony. Since that’s how most of us feel when we read, we thought it was the perfect combination! We definitely think you’ll want to check this book dress out!

Design and cut are perfect

This Katherine Design dress is cut just perfectly for me. The book Mandala design and colors are vivid and eye catching.


Great dress, but different fit

I bought this dress as a treat for myself upon graduation from library school. It is great, and I've very much enjoyed wearing it. Just for those purchasing to know, it is quite longer and looser than my Fit & Flare Dewey Decimal dress. However, I bought that dress back when there were numerical sizes, so I cannot 100% compare the fit by size. I would probably have fit in the smaller size of my normal size ranges, but the larger of the two sizes is still nice with a belt, and extra comfy. Great dress, as always!

Perfect Librarian Dress

I also have the Dewey dress, but the Books Mandala is my favorite. Both are comfortable and cute. Received lots of compliments!


Love It

Dress fit well in all the important places. Was a bit long in the arms for a 3/4 sleeve and was longer in general than expected, but still fit nice. Fabric feels heavy duty but not in a bad way- feels durable but still comfortable. The pattern is very cool. Great color combination. And of course, I love the functional pockets- was able to keep baby’s pacifier and burp cloth in one with keys and phone in the other without issues.

Excellent Addition To My Bookish Wardrobe

I received this dress as a birthday gift, and I'm so happy! I love the colors and the design, and I get so many compliments. It does fit me a little larger than expected, but as someone else suggested, a nice waist belt can fix that right up. It's very comfortable, and of course, the pockets! Just another example of why I continue to shop from Svaha.
