In my latest video, I filmed a winter look book featuring some handmade pieces mixed in with pieces I already own to create full cold weather looks because we had a massive and beautiful snow day in North Carolina! I’ve got pieces from previous and upcoming sewing tutorials so you can get ideas/tips on how I like to style them for winter. I had the perfect backdrop (nearly a foot of snow when it was all done!) so I thought this would be a fun video to film and show you different ways to wear the pieces you’ve learned how to sew from my videos. You also get a sneak peak of the items in my next two tutorials 🙂 I hope you enjoy!
