Buy the Block Tee sewing pattern from Paper Theory Patterns. The Block Tee (formerly known as 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 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.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: The pattern was designed with a woven fabric like linen or cotton in mind, and it works equally well in something light and drapey like a crepe de chine or silk. However it could easily be made in a jersey or stretch fabric with some consideration taken into account for finishing techniques.

Fabric requirements: 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 1.25 – 2.3 m (1.37 – 2.55 yd) // 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 1 – 1.55 m (1.09 – 1.7 yd).

Sizing: UK 6 – 28 (approx. UK 6 – 30, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.
