Saltbox Tee or Tank - Blueprints for Sewing - Digital PDF Pattern


The Saltbox Tee or Tank is inspired by a colonial 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. Great for a beginner, the Saltbox tee features short sleeves that are easy to set in due to having minimal sleeve cap ease and a slightly dropped shoulder. The saltbox tank has a nicely cut armhole and small straps, finished with bias facing.

The cut of Saltbox is relaxed and as a result, this top only comes in 5 sizes. Take it in a bit here and there or wear it loose. Since it has no darts, instructions are given for a FBA (Full Bust Alteration) that adds darts to the top.

Saltbox is a great stashbuster! 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.>

For sizing please see pattern back picture.

Blueprints For Sewing are an indie pattern company based in Massachusetts, USA.  Each pattern takes inspiration from an architectural style, and are simple, flattering, comfortable, and classic with an artistic edge. They emphasize functionality and simplicity and feature thoughtful embellishments and adaptable cuts.

Blueprints are designed to facilitate a variety of common fitting adjustments – not just length like conventional sewing patterns. Though they provide methods for fine tuning, they can also be sewn up without adjustment with great results!
