Meet the Concord, your new favorite tee! Fully customizable, this knit t-shirt is a classic wardrobe staple that's designed for curves with cup sizes from C – H and thoughtful proportions. Forget about t-shirts that are too tight at the bust, baggy and hanging off your shoulders, or bunching into your armpits: the Concord is designed for a body just like yours.
Create your own custom design from three hem lengths (cropped, mid-length or long curved), three necklines (high, V-neck, or scoop), three sleeve lengths (short, medium, or long), two sleeve finishes (cuffed or hemmed), and optional sleeve tabs.
Whether you layer them over jeans on Friday night, or pair them with floral skirts at the office, you’ll want a closet of Concords!

I still can't believe how well the Concord Tee fits me. I had to do a few pattern alterations but not near as many as other Tee patterns I've tried. This pattern has now become a staple in my wardrobe!
This was my first pattern from Cashmerette, and I was thrilled with it. The layers on the pdf made it super easy to cut out, even with grading between a few sizes. And when I emailed with fitting questions I got very helpful responses quicker than I expected. Not to mention how helpful the sewalong blog posts were for doing the step-by-step. I don't think I even used the printed directions. I used this pattern to alter a bunch of RTW oversize cotton t-shirts (shaped the sides and re-set the sleeves), and I'm really happy with the results. I'm looking forward to finding some fabric I love that's actually as stretchy as what the pattern calls for, I think a shirt from scratch would be even more amazing. Cashmerette is now at the top of my list the next time I want to try a new pattern.
Great pattern, I had a different pattern I was using and was quite happy with but I had heard good things about this one so it was my first Cashmerette pattern and I was thrilled with it. I’ve made 3 so far and plan on making many more, I have also joined the Cashmerette club something I would never have thought I would do
I made this first a few years back and was so pleased with it that I made a couple of dozen! Years went by and gradually my concords sustained shrinkage and wear and so it was time to restock. I joined the cashmerette club this year and have been avidly watching the fitting masterclasses and so decided to use my learning to refit the pattern for my current body shape. I graded a smaller size for neck and shoulder and scooped out the back neck and easily had a well fitting pattern. It worked out so well that I went stash diving and have started making all my short jersey lengths into concords! Highly recommended 👏👏👏this pattern rocks for big boobs and I live in these beauties with jeans or calders (also an awesome pattern!)
