Turning Cardigans into Princess Coats: Dyedtrying

The book I’m working on is set in a world overflowing with art of all kinds. When I told her about it, my sister said that one of my characters should wear coats made out of recycled sweaters. I asked her what she meant and she sent me to an Etsy store called dyedtrying. I expected post-apocalyptic patchwork, but owner Amanda Andino Rodriguez makes colorful feminine coats with used knit clothing to order. I especially love the flared skirts and the fairy tale hoods. They’re perfect for my main character’s best friend, who is a professional dancer.
