Scarves


I love adding scarves to an outfit. I came across this great article from 1924 which gives a few different ways to tie a scarf:

In other related news, I have just published my first class on Skillshare! Skillshare is a video-based learning website where you can learn new skills in a variety of categories (illustration, design, crafts, cooking, photography, writing, etc). Each video lesson is usually between about 10 and 35 minutes, and teaches you how to create a project or apply a new skill. Some videos are available to watch for free and the some require a premium membership.
My first video for the site teaches you how to make a scarf using a serger/overlock machine, and goes into a fair bit of detail on how to do each step. I had a heck of a time editing it (I'm so used to only making silent films!), but even if a few of the edits aren't perfectly smooth, the lesson has a lot of useful information in it for anyone wanting to create a scarf. My scarf tutorial is only open to premium members, but you can view the intro without subscribing. 

If you do want to sign up or watch the intro, here is my referral link to my class: http://skl.sh/2amYg0M
Normally premium memberships are $10 a month, but you can get your first 3 months for only $0.99 if you use the link, so it's very inexpensive way to give it a try. (For full disclosure:  I do get a small referral bonus from anyone that signs up via my link). It's honestly a great website and these are so many great videos on there that I hope you check it out! (Or you could always watch my intro video if you just want to hear what my voice sounds like. Am I the only one with an odd fascination with how other bloggers sound in "real life"?)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

That's All.

  2. Fantastic ideas! I so adore learning vintage styling tricks like these from actual vintage sources - they're as close as we can get to actually being there back in the moment. Thank you very much for the wonderful share - and many happy congrats on putting out your first sewing howto video. That's really exciting!
