Angel Baby has recently taken an interest in designing her own clothes. It started earlier this year, when she and I were working on plans for a mother/daughter cruise we had hoped to take this summer. We knew she would need something special to wear during the formal night dinner, but we were running into a lot of problems finding an appropriate dress. She is twelve years old and wears a juniors size clothing. Most of the dresses in the juniors departments looked like they were made for older teens and young women, not at all appropriate for a girl in her tween ages. That was when Angel Baby came up with the idea of designing her own dress. She could look online for ideas and come up with a design, and I would find a way to make the dress.
It seemed like a really good idea to both of us. It was a great idea... Until we discovered the special occasion dresses at Millanoo.com. There are so many beautiful dresses for all ages at Milanoo (in fact, Milanoo has a variety of items for males and females of all ages). They even had formal dresses that we could get to match each other in our own sizes. The prices are very reasonable, as well. We discovered that we didn't have to design the perfect dress for Angel Baby (even though it would've been fun). We could save the time and money needed to make the dress, which would've ended up costing about the same as the dresses we found on the Milanoo site (especially since Milanoo is offering free shipping on special occasion dresses through July 31 in honor of the site's 3rd birthday), and could spend that time in other preparations.
We didn't end up getting to take that cruise this summer, but are hoping we can work it into our plans soon. At least we now know where we can find the perfect dress when the time comes!
