This girls' dress slips over the head and fastens both in front and in back for a fun twist on the wrap dress. The A-line skirt has lots of flare for spinning and includes an extra panel for full coverage. Details include built-in cap sleeves and a back keyhole opening with a simple button/loop closure. Choose to tie the dress in front (View A) or in back (View B). The dress is easy to sew because it doesn’t have buttonholes or zippers, and the construction method is unique and fun.
