For playing in the snow or fireside chatting, this warm but stylish holiday sweater is the perfect vintage style look for your next holiday gathering. This sweater is inspired by the glamorous sisters Betty & Judy of one of my favorite holiday movies, White Christmas; & my favorite plant of the holiday season: the holly bush!
