“A recycled skirt for Lanni” by Sew Moe  6/12/12

A handful of weeks ago I was commissioned by Lanni–the lovely etsy seller behind fashionREdesign to create a look that honors her design philosophy. (Check out her shop! fashionREdesign)
 
Our project was to create the Preppy Gets Edgy wrap skirt–in its recycled form.  Lanni honors her sustainable fashion ethics full time–and I’m so delighted I get to help.  Its not as easy as you’d think to be a conscious fashionista…
I ended up finding enough materials from my pile of donated clothes and one lucky thrift-store-score to make this skirt fully recycled/reused except for the 4 little snaps and closure clasps.
Starting materials:
charcoal grey simple shift dress and matching house coat
floral print, sleeveless summer dress
cotton floral long sleeved tunic
