The Nautical Diva shirt was inspired by a shirt I saw on Pinterest. My version is a different, I wanted a fun color-blocked back so the back and the pocket are both gold. The proportions are also different to give it more of a dolman sleeve.
Lately on Pinterest I've been seeing a lot of tutorials that are basically summed up in a collage of pictures. Since I'm laid up in bed with bronchitis and didn't take photos when I was sewing my Nautical Diva shirt, I thought I'd give it a shot.

***If you want a great pattern with a shape very similar to this to go off of, there is one HERE, and the proceeds go to helping women escape sex trafficking.***
Here is a very simple mini-tutorial for you: You'll need some scraps/strips of different colored jersey or interlock fabrics, a double needle for the hemming, and a measuring tape.

And here it is from the front. I hope if you decide to make it that you'll email me a photo!
