- Princess seams are long rounded seams sewn into women's blouses or shirts to add shaping or a tailored fit to closely follow a woman's shape. They are sewn into the front and/or back of a shirt, and extend from the waist up to the arms.
- The princess seam style of dress needs no waistline at all, since it does its shaping without darts, by joining edges of different curvature. The resulting "princess seams" typically runs from the shoulder (or under the arm) curving gently over the bust point and down to the lower hem. This creates a long, slimming look, often seen in dresses with an "A-line" silhouette
Here is the definition of the princess seams I wasn't sure if I handed this out last class. If not copy and paste it into your notes please.
Hope you had a great break, don't forget there is a test at the beginning of the next class it will take 40 minutes to complete and then we have some fun fitting mock ups! For the test all you need to know is the basic draft, scales, letters, some fixed rules. Go over the handouts I gave the first class with the measurement chart and you will be fine.
