The Saybrook Tank sewing pattern is making all our knit tank dreams come true! This new pattern comes in sizes 12-32 and cup sizes C-H, which means you can get a great bust fit without a hint of bra peeking out.
For this pattern, we recommend light- to mid-weight knits with at least 25% stretch crosswise, such as rayon jersey, bamboo rib knit, or ITY, with at least 5% spandex to have good recovery on the bindings. The Saybrook doesn’t require a lot of yardage, which means you likely already have a knit in your stash that you can whip up into a tank. But if you don’t, or if you’re looking for something extra special, you’re in the right place! We’ve rounded up our favorite Saybrook-worthy fabrics available right now for convenient at-home online shopping.

Plus, you can save 15% on all fabric in the Stonemountain shop (excluding sale items) through Saturday, September 12, 2020 with code CASHMERETTE15.
Fabric Ideas for the Saybrook Tank
We love a good rib knit for the Saybrook, and this particular one comes in a variety of deep shades. We love it so much, we used the yellow colorway for our cover sample!
The Saybrook works well in soft and neutral tones, too. Pair your Saybrook with a pair of wide-leg Calder Pants for the ultimate transitional look.
Go bold with a bright color! Make your Saybrook the star of your outfit.
Saybrook + stripes = match made in heaven. We used a fabulous striped rib knit for one of our cover samples that is unfortunately sold out at the moment, but thankfully you can find some great striped knits almost anywhere you shop.
The easiest way to mix in prints into your wardrobe is with florals. Floral jerseys come in an endless variety of colors, scale, and designs—and you’re going to want them all.
Bring out your wild side with fun animal print jerseys. Whether you go for realistic or abstract, an animal-print Saybrook is sure to turn heads.
Go for a geometric print that you’ll reach for time and time again. These triangle print jerseys all caught our eye!
Jerseys come in an endless variety of prints, so have fun picking out your favorite! And if you can’t choose just one—well, at least the Saybrook is quick to sew, so you can pick out and make as many as you want.
