Buy Handmade: Hand Crafted Clothing for Summer

It’s super fun to make your own clothing sometimes or to alter something you picked up at the thrift store, but once in a while isn’t it nice to splurge on a piece that someone else created?

There’s also that satisfaction when you buy handmade, right? You’re helping support an artist who’s doing the thing she loves, and you’re keeping your money away from the big box stores and large corporations. Who knew that buying a skirt could be a political statement?

If you also want your handmade purchases to be in line with your eco-friendly philosophies, it’s easy as pie to find crafters making refashioned and organic pieces for your wardrobe. Here is some of the handmade, eco-friendly clothing I’ve been eying for summer!

I mentioned this little gem in my newsletter, but I shamefully mixed up the name of the seller with another of my Etsy clothing faves. This awesome mod dress from Pierogi Picnic is made from reclaimed t-shirts.
