The Saltbox Tee or Tank is inspired by a classic New England home with an odd, asymmetrical roof line. It features a pieced bodice in front and back, a side vent at the hip, and a boat neck.


Version 1 is a short sleeve top with neckline facings. Great for a beginner, it features sleeves that are easy to set in due to minimal sleeve cap ease and a slightly dropped shoulder line.

Version 2 is a tank top with narrow straps and armholes that angle in slightly towards the neck. The neckline and armholes are finished with bias facing.

Saltbox is a great stash buster! Requiring as little as 1/2 yard for one of the contrasting fabric choices, you can use up those precious small cuts you've been hanging onto. Or use smaller cuts of different fabrics for each piece, creating a patchwork look.


This pattern comes with a Fit Guide that includes alteration instructions. It also includes instructions for making your own bias tape. Since the cut of Saltbox is relaxed, this top comes in combined sizes (equivalent to M, XL etc). The PDF includes all sizes A-P (see size information here). The PDF contains both Letter/A4 and Copyshop/A0 format files.
