SustainStyle: The Perfect Yoga Get-Up, Free Patterns, Green House Boutique + More

Welcome to SustainStyle, a new weekly digest from the writers at 1plus1, a blog dedicated to eco-friendly fashion. SustainStyle will run every Wednesday.


This week we start on the month-old New Year's resolution list we planned for 2008! Just like any girl (and most men), "more physical exercise" is the top priority in the New Year, so we put together the perfect yoga get-up for this week's DRESS ME. Next, we moved to the "do more creative things" resolution and got schooled by Burda Style, the "open source sewing" destination that offers free ultra-hip patterns and tips on how to use them. Staying in a crafty mood, we used our brooch converter tools to recycle old jewelry into new favorites. With our extracurricular schedule filling up quickly, Ashley Watson's recycled leather day planner helped us keep everything organized. And in keeping with our everlasting love of fashion we gave applause to Saks Fifth Avenue's new Green House boutique, Edun's ONE T-shirt, and the Environmental Justice Foundation's pairing up with high fashion designers and models for the Pick Your Cotton campaign.
