Bent body Block: Cutting Instructions

Main fabric

  • Cut 1 Front part on the fold.
  • Cut 1 Back part on the fold.
  • Cut 2 Top sleeve parts.
  • Cut 2 Under sleeve parts.

These cutting instructions are just for the default Bent block. Adjust your cutting accordingly if you have/are making changes to the block.


As Bent is a block it does not have any closures. If you are making a test Bent you will want to Cut 2 Front parts with seam allowances so you can pin yourself into it.

Bent is a block, not a pattern

A block is a basic shape on which other patterns are based. They are sometimes also called slopers, although purists will argue that a block and a sloper are different things.

Blocks are typically not made as-is but rather serve as a basis for other patterns.
