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!

Great pattern but the neck is quite wide.. it feels almost unusually so. I find that I have to be very specific about what bras I wear because of how wide the neckline is. Other than that, it is a great t-shirt with lots of options and great instructions.
I saw all the rave comments about this tee, and I thought, what's all the fuss about a t-shirt? But I decided to try it anyway. And OMG! It's amazing. I made a 2 C/D and it fits beautifully. Usually everything is too big for me in the shoulders, but this is perfect! I've drunk the kool-aid and joined the club! Thanks for adding the smaller sizes. Xoxo
This was my first Cashmerette pattern. This Concord was a perfect sew! It fit perfectly and the neckline was the easiest I've ever sewn!!! Can't wait to make more! So glad you offer the smaller sizes now!

It took 2 makes to get the fit I wanted but now I have fabric to make 4 more. I have already hacked it to make a boat neck with three-quarter sleeves. It will be a wardrobe staple!
