Picture it...a perfect blend of blacks, white, and greys would bring any zebra to turn green with envy. The color palette is perfectly reflected in both the print and the solid colors through out this beautiful creation. They all combine smoothly into the soft black sweater at the bodice and is finished quite sweetly with a soft fleece Belt.
I have cracked the twirl code to make this skirt swirl like ripples on a pond and reaches a full 16feet in diameter. I finished the front with a belted closure of purple ribbed velvet as well as the final ring on the skirt!! The texture in this coat is out of this world! It is made from the softest knits i could find. each one was so light that this coat almost feels like your favorite t-shirt. :)

My Process: When I choose a garment to include in a Reconstructed Coat, it is not easy to make the cut for the sweater in question! Each sweater is examined in depth for a richness in color, texture and condition. When we do choose those select few that make it back to our Sweater Cave we then identify which sweaters will be processed immediately and which need to go to our Sweater Doctor! At the Sweater Clinic these hopefully sweaters undergo many treatments such as, shaving, conditioning, trimming and even full color-restorations are performed so that every sweater is at the top of their game before they become Technicolor Squirrel Dream Coat!
ABOUT ME AND MY SWEATER BABIES:
Technicolor Squirrel is a place for sweaters to go when their initial sweater career had ended. Rather than being destroyed, tossed in the dump or left to languish in the bottom of a lonely closet; these sweaters are lovingly rescued and given a second chance as beautiful, hand crafted sweater coats. Technicolor Squirrel is dedicated to the rescue of healthy sweaters who still have a long and loving life ahead of them and who would like nothing better than to become a productive member of your family. Technicolor Squirrel guarantees that all rescue sweater coats have been fully screened and trained to never chew on your favorite shoes or pee on the rug. Our rescue sweater coats have been lovingly taught to provide stylish warmth and comfort for the length of its life so please adopt a Technicolor Squirrel sweater coat today!
