Striped dresses and athletic sweats are a dime a dozen. Lia Molly, on the other hand, has a line of crushingly cute clothes for precious lasses. Hand knitted with eye-popping threads, the droolicious details of fabulous appliqués and velvet ribbons add to the charm of each piece. Seen more like a work of art than a sweater or a dress, I am tempted to buy the whole collection. I just don't know how I will choose between the tea party sweater, the mouse beret, or the spotted sweater dress.

The best part about these unique pieces? You can turn them into something else when your tot outgrows them — a pillow, quilt or perhaps even framing the wee wear for a childhood keepsake.
