Recycled with Style - Lillipops Designs!

Little girls in sweet summer sundresses just got a whole lot greener. One of my favorite Etsy shop owners Jayme Lillie, creator and chief designer at Lillipops Designs sews up beautiful recycled loveliness that any little girl would be ecstatic to wear.

With total twirl-ability, these recycled sundresses are created out of secondhand materials such as mens button down dress shirts and vintage table clothes.

The dresses are beautiful, whimsical, and professionally crafted. Don't have a little girl at home? Check out her selection of upcycled board shorts for that little dude in your life.

What we love most about Lillipops Designs is that what she sells in her Etsy shop is just a preview of what she can create. Custom designs are welcome and encouraged. We're hoping to send Lillipops Designs some special Papa shirts for her to craft into a wearable keepsake.

GET YOUR OWN (with a coupon): Lillipops has a fantastic coupon code just for Simple Readers! Simply mention "Simple" at checkout and receive $5 off your total order!
