Block Tee Pattern
Available: 3 In Stock
The Block Tee (Formerly named the Kabuki Tee) is a modern, oversized t-shirt, designed to look relaxed and feel easy to wear in a woven fabric without restricting movement.
The body is much wider than a regular t-shirt and the sleeves are longer than normal, sitting just above the elbow, with the angular square armholes being its hallmark feature. The neckline has a hidden binding to complement its minimalist design and the hem turn ups are extra deep to emphasise its boxy silhouette.

The pattern was designed with a woven fabric like Linen or Cotton in mind, and it would work equally well in something light and drapey like a Crepe de Chine or Silk.
The pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner.
For reference the main model pictured here is 5'5" with a 32" bust (the model with long straight hair) She is wearing a size 8. The second model is 5'9 with a 43" bust (short Afro hair) She is wearing a size 20.
You will learn to make your own bias binding and apply it to the neckline. The armholes are square and sewing right angles may be a new technique for some beginner sewists - however there is a video on the Paper Theory blog to guide those who are unfamiliar with this technique.
