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.

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.

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.

Sizes 6 -28 are included in your purchase.
