Princess Line

A dress or top with a seamline that runs from the armhole to the hem, or the shoulder and the hem, where the bust and waist darts are incorporated into this seam. 

Examples

The  Extended Line Dress Block front and back with the princess line drawn through the armhole.  The side seam dart can be pivoted into the armhole seam line.

Other changes may be made, depending on the final design.  Some examples are:  (a) the second waist dart can be eliminated -  either just removed for a looser fit, or the amount can be incorporated into the main dart for a slimmer fit, (b) sleeves can be added,  (c) the skirt can be made A-line, as in the example dress in Image 2 below.
