A very 70s outfit – Named Paola Turtleneck Tee and Ottobre 5/2016 #6 tweed skirt

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.
