Steph of 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World recently came out with a free pattern for a kimono-sleeve tee. It’s got a neat shape and is super fun. For my next version (yes, there will be a next) I’ll lower the neckline a bit.
The pattern comes in several sizes and two varieties: || (rectangular, for those of us built like children’s blocks) and V, for those lucky curvy people. I used the size 35||, which was perfect for my 33" bust in this very-unstretchy knit. If you’re a true 35" bust, make sure your knit has some give. :)

A godawful, rolly, uncooperative, un-stretchy (but very stable) knit from the clearance racks. Fortunately the stripes are really cute and it’s very sturdy once it’s sewn.
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
