Semi-Handmade Spring Wardrobe Series: Recap

I have had such a wonderful week sharing all my Semi-Handmade Spring Wardrobe creations with you all!  

Here’s a recap of Savannah’s entire Spring Wardrobe made by her mama.  The rest of her clothing is more basic play clothes.  I got her some denim shorts, khaki shorts, two pairs of knit shorts and some knit capris.  I think she may need another pair of capris or so, but this should have her set for awhile, don’t you think?
Butterfly Dress
Created from an old, stained polo shirt
Bumble Bee Skirt
Created to match a store-bought tank
Cupcake Dress
Created from an old dress and the applique from a stained t-shirt
Yoga Band Skirt
Created from the bottom of an adult woman’s shirt
“Too Sweet” High-Waisted Dress
Created from an old, stained t-shirt
 Ruffled Capris
Created from odd-fitting pants
Ruffle Front Party Dress
Created from an old, stained t-shirt
Finally, I included three other pieces in this recap that weren’t semi-handmade, but I made them for Savannah to wear this spring/summer so they are part of her wardrobe……
