Sheath

A sheath dress is a simple, straight dress which contains vertical and bust darts for a streamlined, formfitting silhouette.

A sheath dress is a fitted, narrow, straight-cut dress that has a defined waistline either implied by vertical darts or a set-in waistline. The skirt is generally a pencil-cut, falls around the knee, and usually requires a slit to make walking, well…possible!
