I found the picture of this sweater several years ago on Pintrest and it was love at first sight. I think what I love most about it is the unique color combo of the parrots against the green of the sweater. Very shortly after seeing this I put it on my to-do list for pieces I wanted to recreate. To put my own spin on the sweater, I wanted to do the parrots hand-beaded and wanted to put them on a dress. I choose the 1940s design I had used for the “Moonglow” dress, but am doing it in a lime green cotton blend in the same color as the sweater above.
