striped T-shirt for a charming sailor

Colmar, France






The french designer Jean-Paul Gaultier has used the sailor T-shirt as a trademark
For my sailor T-shirt, I have played with the stripes. The jersey fabric is striped horizontally, but I have pinned the pattern in the diagonal, one side for 2 pieces of the pattern and the opposite side for the 2 other part.s. I have used white lace for the sleeves.
for the pattern : model 107/107 Burda 12/2007
To wear with this T-shirt, I have sewed this white short. The fabric is cotton and stretch

    I love this tee shirt Kocotte. You have really inspired me to mix up my knit fabrics and to hold on to every piece of left over fabric.

    Wow, it lines up so perfectly! I love all the diagonals with the seams. Was it hard to match them up?

      In fact, I did not take care about matching the lines, I think it is not necessary with small stripes
