The Candice Gwinn Grace Coat Dress is really quite timeless in style. Appropriately named, this modern take on a classic design radiates grace. This dress features all that you could possibly want in a vintage-inspired coat dress. The Grace Coat Dress includes a rounded Peter Pan collar, covered buttons that extend from the bust down the length of the skirt, and a lovely detachable bow. Each feature is exquisite, but what makes the Grace complete is the beautiful tailored fit. Princess seams are to credit for this slim, flattering shape.

What makes the Grace such a timeless style is the manner in which she was constructed. This vintage-inspired garment features princess seams at the front, rear, and sides. This type of sewing creates a long and slim silhouette.

Princess seams are a variation of darts. This style of sewing creates a rounded seam from the top of a garment down to the hem. The princess seam does not require a waistline since this style gets its own dart-free shape. Princess seams are most commonly seen in dresses with A-line silhouettes.

With a classic vintage shape and undeniably retro details, the Grace Coat Dress is a timeless piece to add to your collection. Special in its presentation and construction, the Grace is a true beauty!
