Vanga Vintage Kantha Dress

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by amazing cut Was following an advice and ordered 2 dresses, hoping at least for one be with no oranges, but pretty pattern in blues(as picture on web:), lavanders or pinks. I ordered expedited shipping of 2 to 3 days on Tuesday Noon, but it arrived only next Monday. When I opened it, It looked pretty bad to me, both of them had orange-rust colors. And not too I am getting rejects. See photos...One is yellow stained pale blue with pretty main pattern but with awkward assimetrical rust inserts and lonely orange bricks on one breast. Second is fruit dress with HUGE bright orange-red fruits, black sticks on it and was very unflattering on....Asymmetrical tops make both dresses look a bit clownish on. While trying dresses on, I was impressed with a cut and grew to a blue one, maybe I will keep. By the way, two same size dresses have a pretty different fit, and one dress is way stiffer then another. August 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous and a Fun Process I think people need to lighten up and have fun with the mystery of the color. I for one, felt like it was Christmas morning every time another one came in the mail--I was so excited to see what exactly had arrived. And lets be honest--the anthro return policy is generous. Dresses are HEAVY and beautifully made. Perfect for Boston weather, but as a native Texan I think it might be too warm all year round. The dress fits TTS, but the bottom of the arms a bit tight. The inside of the dress is soft and another beautiful fabric that complements the outside fabric. So people know what they're mailing out, I attached photos. I think 2 of 3 dresses I ordered were great. The two I liked are pictured (I went with the orange one), the third looked very "pastoral"--my boyfriend said it looked like I need a flock of sheep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by One of a kind dress This dress is really one of a kind. Just wish I could have picked my dress instead of waiting ever so patiently to see what my dress looked like when it arrived in the mail. The first dress I got was the orange one. I really never wear orange but thought it was a pretty pattern. I liked the back of it. I decided to try one more dress. When I opened the second box, it was so excited! It was the perfect dress. I love, love, love the black version. Both are xs, but there is a difference in the fit. The orange dress was about 2 inches wider in the waist & skirt, thus making it too puffy for me. The dress is comfortable. The only thing I didn't notice before I ordered, is that the trim going down the middle of the dress is see thru but it doesn't really bother me. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because you can't choose what pattern you want & the fit was different in both. I still would recommend this dress, just order several & choose your fav.
