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.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
