This dress is so cozy! Mia has tons of dresses, but none that are warm and cozy like this one. I was able to put my flannel to good use :) For the top of the dress I used a long sleeve red t-shirt from WalMart. It was only $3.50. You know the Granimals brand? Anyway, I liked the red metallic elastic around the neck and thought it would be really cute if I made it into a dress with Christmas fabric. I added a flannel flower with a button in the center out of some other Christmas flannel. Mia LOVES it! Now I need to make Hayden one. It has been so cold here (well cold for me!), so if you also live in cold weather, I totally recommend sewing your daughter a dress out of flannel
I'm Katie! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was inspired to create MiaMoo Designs in honor of my daughter, Mia. This has been such a fun journey! I started MiaMoo Designs 7 years ago and was mostly selling flower clips and burp cloths. I slowly began incorporating dresses, skirts and other hair accessories and turned this blog into more of a craft blog where I could post all my projects, tutorials, etc. I've been making chunky beaded necklaces for about 6 years and I think I finally found my niche! They have really taken off :) I LOVE beads and designing new necklaces to go with various clothing lines and special outfits for my clients. I really enjoy custom orders because they continue to help me think outside the box. Both my daughters 9yrs. and 6yrs. wear my necklaces and feel so glamorous especially with all the compliments they get from people when we're out! MiaMoo Designs necklaces are so unique and will make any little girl feel special. To order, leave me a comment at the bottom of the blog post you are interested in, or go to my big cartel shop to see what is already pre-made (link is at the top right of my blog). You can also find me on Facebook! Thanks! Can't wait to work with you :)
Just a Side Note:
I use swarovski crystals on my accessories--Please keep in mind they do not always photograph well due to the way they pick up light. In person they are VERY sparkly :) If you have any questions regarding the color of the rhinestones used please feel free to leave me a comment!
