I just complete my first Cashmerette pattern, the Concord. I have tried to sew for my full busted daughter in the past. This pattern was fabulous. I look forward to more sewing. I love the v-neckline method. Once cut, I finished the top in 45 minutes. I plan to mass produce these in every color.
I LOVE this pattern!!! I never realized before just how much I would appreciate a perfectly fitted T. I've always "made do" with a tee that didn't fit in the shoulders or strained at the bustline. Despite the busy Christmas season, I wanted to do something quick just for me. Last week I cut up a men's t-shirt I had purchased on sale - cut off the sleeves and up the sides. The neckline was fine. I laid the Concord T pattern on top of the fabric and recut the torso and arm scythe. I re-stitched it and in 40 minutes had my first perfectly fitted T ever. Now I have a pile of tees to recut. I just can't recommend this pattern highly enough!!!!
So I can finally throw away all the T-shirt muslins and patterns “in Process”! So weary of tweaks and FBA’s - This one fit without a single adjustment. I’m excited and grateful and I’ve already ordered three more patterns for my E/F sized bust. THANK YOU! Can I make a request for a woven shell pattern? Boatneck options for Concord…going crazy here. I’m sew excited!
Bloody brilliant! A t-shirt that actually fits out of the packet!!!!! No more faffing about with fit issues
This was the first time I ever graded a pattern between sizes...however, I did with the easy instructions and grid patterns. This is the best fitting T I have ever worn, I have made 6 already.
