Maritime Knit Shirt - Patchwork Front

Maritime knit shirt with long sleeves and patchwork front


Third time for the Maritime Shirt and this one has a patchwork front with long sleeves.




This one came from this pin and I fell in love with colors and the idea of the patchwork

All the fabric came from Mood and most is a jersey knit, they cream is a french terry.

I measured the front pattern piece to determine how much length I would need but I did measure incorrectly the first time.  I measured from center front and not the shoulders to bottom of the front!  Oops!  I did have to redo it.

Here are my previous two Maritime Shirts



This was a fun top to do and with my first patchwork mistake, I made the 10 month granddaughter a dress and I couldn't leave the 8 month old out either, so she has a striped dress.  I did use the cream French Terry for the back on both dresses, just added a bit more warmth.

I did have more fabric left, so later in the week will be a Blackwood Cardigan, with lots of fabric piecing.  I love this Blackwood Cardigan!

  4. Wow! Way nicer than the inspiration pin shirt. This has made me think I might try and put some of my scraps together in a simple top - it's all about getting the colours and proportions right - which you have done perfectly.
