The Concord Tee fit is superior to any tee pattern that I have tried. It has become my knit base. In fact, as I write this, I am wearing a maxi dress hack based on the Concord Tee. Great job, Cashmerette!
I love my Concord pattern. It's easy to make, easy to hack for a million different looks, but most importantly: zero adjustments and I still get a perfect fit! No straining fabric over my (very) large bust!
I'm never buying a RTW t-shirt again.
Really enjoyed making this. I’ve only been sewing a year but it was easy to follow with a great result.
I love this shirt! It actually fits! I've never found a knit shirt that fit so well. Can't wait to make more!
This is the most flattering t-shirt I have ever worn! I made it in a red ponte Roma first in a 16 C/D and didn't need to make adjustments to the pattern. It's a quick and easy make with very clear instructions and I cut and stuck the pdf together in about 15 minutes. It skims over lumps and bumps and has a very feminine shape. I also made one for a friend and she loves it! Well done Cashmerette!
