The text on this pattern is an extract from the adventure novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, written by Jules Verne in 1870 (chapter I,10, translated by F.P. Walter) :

- "You love the sea, Captain.
- Yes, I love it! The sea is the be all and end all! It covers seven–tenths of the planet earth. Its breath is clean and healthy. It's an immense wilderness where a man is never lonely, because he feels life astir on every side. The sea is simply the vehicle for a prodigious, unearthly mode of existence; it's simply movement and love; it's living infinity, as one of your poets put it. And in essence, professor, nature is here made manifest by all three of her kingdoms, mineral, vegetable, and animal. The last of these is amply represented by the four zoophyte groups, three classes of articulates, five classes of mollusks, and three vertebrate classes: mammals, reptiles, and those countless legions of fish, an infinite order of animals totaling more than 13,000 species, of which only one–tenth belong to fresh water. The sea is a vast pool of nature. Our globe began with the sea, so to speak, and who can say we won't end with it! Here lies supreme tranquility. The sea doesn't belong to tyrants. On its surface they can still exercise their iniquitous claims, battle each other, devour each other, haul every earthly horror. But thirty feet below sea level, their dominion ceases, their influence fades, their power vanishes! Ah, sir, live! Live in the heart of the seas! Here alone lies independence! Here I recognize no superiors! Here I'm free!"
Captain Nemo suddenly fell silent in the midst of this enthusiastic outpouring.

Breton stripes are the typical pattern of the French “Marinière”. This cotton long-armed shirt was originally worn by seamen in the French Navy. It becomes fashionable with the vogue of sea bathing in France at the end of the 19th century, and this trend spreads to all European beach resorts at the beginning of the 20th century. Continuously reinvented by Haute Couture designers, the Marinière has happened to be iconic of the “French Style” … and has even became its stereotype ;)

To sew your own Breton stripe shirt, you may use “Organic Cotton Knit Ultra” for a classic warm shirt, or else “Cotton Spandex Jersey” or “Modern Jersey” for a lighter and more flowing version.
Anyhow, this design can also be printed on any kind of fabric for any kind of project...

Pour coudre une marinière, vous pouvez utiliser le jersey de coton bio “Organic Cotton Knit Ultra” pour une marinière classique (jersey épais et assez chaud), ou bien le “Cotton Spandex Jersey” ou le “Modern Jersey” pour une version plus fluide et légère.
