Princess Dress: A shapely A-line dress with princess seams, asymmetrical neckline and sleeve variations. The simplicity of this dress is what makes it so lovely. What you don't see when looking at it is the hidden attention to detail, the curve of the asymmetrical neckline, the limited ease throughout the torso and waist and how that flows into the line of the skirt. Sizes 4–22.
One Seam Wrap: This one seam tie wrap is simplicity itself. One pattern piece with only sleeve seams, ties softly at the centre front, is the perfect accent for the princess seam dress. No unflattering gathers that add weight and bulk. Sizes SM–XL.
Suggested Fabrics: Knit fabrics with at least 50% cross-grain stretch will be best.$29.00
