Red Composition Dress

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by well designed and fun, but big I got this dress in the mail yesterday, and it took me a minute to warm up to it. It is definitely oversized, and while I was expecting that, it caught me off-guard just how oversized it is. Despite this initial shock, I still fell in love. The cut and fabric are perfect, and the overall look is whimsical and easy-going. The dress also fits me perfectly in the shoulders, which balances nicely with the billowy fit of the rest of the garmet. Please be aware that I ordered the smallest size, and I am probably NOT the smallest person! I'm short with an hourglass figure (5 ft 2 and 115 lbs), and I usually wear a size 4 in dresses. I am not sure how well this would work on someone slimmer. The picture on the website is deceiving, and anthropologie obviously tailored the dress on the model to make it look more fitted than it is. Still, it is a great piece, but it is nice to know what you're buying! February 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy and loose I do love this dress. It is actually more of an orange than red and is not as short as they show on the model, unless you are over 6 feet tall. I am usually a size 8, 5'4" 138 pounds with a bit of a tummy and the medium fit me nicely, loose and breezy, but not oversized in the shoulders. The length comes to just above my knees. The front view on the model makes the dress look more cinched in around the waist than the dress actually is. The fabric has a nice weight to it, not too thin and sheer like some summer dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by must have oversized dress! I recently purchased this dress from a nearby store after seeing it in the sale section online. I love Dusen Dusen and figured the price couldn't be beat for her quality of work. I agree with the other reviewer that suggested this dress was pinned back behind the model. It's definitely loose, but in the best way possible. May 15, 2013

RED MOTIF Style #:26750489 A Made In Kind design.

Dusen Dusen, the clothing line of DC-bred, Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen, consists of simple, well-executed silhouettes in bold prints. Recently influenced by a forgotten Italian design collective called Memphis and their saturated, frenetic prints, she covered this swingy mini dress with a print reminiscent of marble notebooks from her schooldays.
