You might want to try a few more shots with your daughter further from the camera. The weave might not have been fine enough for the distances you used.

Indeed, it seems a lot of people who are testing for moire don't realize that the worst moire happens when detail goes beyond what the actual pixels can resolve. So getting the weave pattern to be at a sub pixel size is where it will show up.

Also higher contrast detail will show it more than such soft contrast fabric.

If you look closely you can start to see color moire just start to show up in some of the highlighted samples.

I'd be curious to see your further tests.

Thanks for posting them!
