Skiff Tee

The Skiff Tee is a fun nod to the seaman’s Breton sweaters of France. The basic shape is a wide bateau neckline and slim fit silhouette with straight or vented hems, but there is more to this tee! Use the colorblocked styles to play with stripes, patterns or even sheer knits across the bodice and/or short or long sleeves! The shoulder seam is eliminated on the blocked pieces for a unique yoke style, and there is an optional chest pocket built into the front seam. A separate patch pocket is offered for the plain tee.

Unisex for children’s sizes newborn through 12 years.

Recommended fabrics include:

Light to medium knits like tissue knits, jersey, cotton Lycra, lightweight French terry, Ponte de Roma, Liverpool, or interlock. Ribbing from cotton Lycra, rib knit, smooth cuff, or self fabric if it has sufficient recovery. Knits with 25 – 40% 2-way stretch for the body of the tee.

You may make and sell garments made from this pattern on a home-production basis. I’d love it if you give credit to Jennuine Design in your listings. Please contact me about manufacturing on a larger scale using hired seamstresses.
