Pattern Description:

Ready to work your curves? Want to bare some skin while still keeping things modest? The Principesa Dress, worked in one seamless piece from the bottom up, has you covered - literally! At first glance, it looks like loads of boring stockinette, but there are actually a lot of interesting shaping details here. A folded hem, evenly spaced hip increases, unusual waist decreases in the back, princess?style waist darts in the front, reversible lace on the cowl and an I?cord bindoff around the sleeve openings will keep you paying attention without making you want to pull out your hair. It's meant to be form?fitting, but don't worry - the back is still just high enough to cover a pair of Spanx!
