I mentioned in my post about my Ottobre 5/2016 tee that I liked the turtleneck style so much, I quickly moved on to the Named Paola Turtleneck Tee. When I started this project, I realised this was the ideal opportunity to use up some neglected fabrics in my stash, and make the perfect (or perfectly daggy) 70s outfit.
I like to keep a close eye on the latest Burda releases, and when this pattern was announced, I knew I had to make it. The drama! The boxiness! Those sleeves!
I’m really behind on blogging some garments – this shirt was made way back at the beginning of December. At the time, the weather was warming up and I decided I needed some new short sleeve shirts. So, armed with yet another fabric order from The Remnant Warehouse, I got to work.
This outfit was a near miss – one of those projects that you mess up so frustratingly that you want to chuck in the bin and forget about. Lucky me that I chose to persevere!
