A Rainy Saturday: Part II
What becomes of your outworn clothing? There was a time I would cut swatches from old favorites before tossing them away. The spirit of our time, reduce, reuse and recycle, offers a charming alternative to the landfill. Thanks to designers like Lionel Lymon and boutiques like Green Pomegranate, a recently retired dress shirt was reborn as a small boy's trousers. That its blue and yellow plaid continues to please someone should be a joy for all of us.
