Look at this adorable dress! Isn't it precious? Sallee Couch, creator of beautifully handcrafted Poppy Dip clothes, has donated one of her cute creations to our fund-raiser auction.

This colorful little dress would be perfect for this Spring and Summer's fun events. Whether it is an Easter Egg hunt, a Mother's Day picnic, or an outdoor wedding, the little princess in your life will look adorable and feel comfy in this 100% cotton, no-itch, no-bind, loose-fitting dress. The dress also layers well with leggings, cardigans, and long sleeve shell shirts. And when it gets a little too short to be worn just as a dress, it goes great as a tunic top. I know, because my little Miss M has owned quite a few of the Poppy Dip creations and her dresses "grew" into shirts.

Here are a couple of dresses being worn by Sallee's little sweetie. Different fabric, but you get the idea.

This particular dress is in size 2T which means it measures 21 inches in length. Because of the versatility of wearing it with leggings or over bike shorts, this dress should last your little girl for two or three seasons, first as a dress, then as a tunic top.

This dress will make a beautiful addition to your little girl's wardrobe or as a wonderful birthday, baby shower, or adoption gift.

As with all the other items we are auctioning, all the proceeds go towards my three kids' upcoming mission trips. These dresses normally sell for $35, but we will start the bidding at $25.

To participate in the auction, leave your name, the amount you are bidding, and your contact information. We will ship if you don't live locally...heck, I'll even ship it gift-wrapped straight to the recipient if it is a present. The auction will end the evening of April 8th. Whoever has bid the most at that time will be the winner. This will ensure that if you are wanting the dress before Easter, you'll have plenty of time to get it.

Sallee sells her handcrafted items to help fund her family's African adoptions and to support other adoptive families in bringing their children home. What a beautiful purpose behind beautiful creations!
