yet another Maritime tee

Yet more of the same – but wait, it’s in a different fabric!

And wait again! It’s got long sleeves!

So, this is the Liesl + Co Maritime top again – the previous two are here, as are most construction details.  The fabric is a lovely soft viscose/lycra from Darn Cheap Fabrics (yes, the $2 table) and it feels absolutely delightful against the skin.  I lengthened the sleeves by laying the sleeve pattern for the Deer & Doe Plantain tee over the sleeve pattern for the Maritime tee and using the Plantain pattern from the underarm point down to the sleeve hem but the Maritime pattern for the top of the sleeve.  Does that make sense?  As it turned out I needed to both narrow and shorten the sleeves after the top was constructed, but that wasn’t hard to do.

In fact, I have another long-sleeved Maritime all cut out waiting to be constructed. That doesn’t really surprise you, does it…
