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!

What a quick and easy sew! I had never made such an easy t-shirt. Unfortunately I believed that Cashmerette patterns run small. This is the second pattern I’ve made from Cashmerette that runs small. Next time I make this T-shirt I will size up, possibly two sizes. I don’t like my clothes tight on my body.
Thanks for your review Michelle! The Concord has negative ease, but you can always tell how the fit will be by checking out the Finished Garment Measurements table - that way you can be sure to have the ease you'd like!
Perfect pattern with great instructions.
I was so impressed with the style and fit of this pattern that I made several! As always the instructions were easy to understand and the top came together smoothly. I even made 2 more “fancy” ones out of a slinky jersey and a stretch velvet. Comfortable and beautiful at the same time. Definitely a go to pattern now.
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!
