The Key West Wrap, by Frog Princess Fashions, is a casual dress, crop top, or wrap skirt that can double as a sun or swim cover-up. The wrap-around style simply buttons, snaps, or ties in place with no zippers! The sleeveless dress or crop top is a comfortable look for sweltering summer heat, and the wrap-around skirt is a season-spanner. All three are easy to sew and suited for a variety of woven fabrics to make dressing for sunny weather both pretty and comfortable. Make one or several—they whip up quickly and are fat-quarter friendly! Great for crafting with kids, too. Complete the look with the stylish beach bag included with the pattern. Grab some shades and flip-flops and your doll will be ready for a day in the sun!
