Default Easy Wrap Dress

I found this on pinterest and thought it would be an easy thing to make/sew. Its a wrap dress that has only two slots for the arms. It would make a nice maternity dress or even something for in the summer months

The pictures at the website doesn't seem to go with the pattern to me. But maybe thats because the dress they're showing is a thinner material and wet. I don't know.

Until I saw the back of the dress I thought you had found the answer to my quest for a summer sun dress. It is pretty though.

Add some pockets and it would make a decent, very easy apron/coverall for messy jobs.

Be great as an after bath wrap, if made from terry cloth -- Or beach wrap

I did come across another picture of a dress that three arm holes. You use two like you would putting on a shirt or something and then you bring the other across you and slip your arm in it.
Let me look again on pinterest. Maybe I can find it. I'm not sure if I pinned it or not
