Wow! I love this pattern... I cut a size 14 g/h and made zero alterations which never happens! Thought for sure it was going to be too small when I was sewing it up but it fits perfectly. I'm so used to buying RTW tees that are way too big to accomodate my bust so it's fantastic finding this easy to make pattern with lots of design options! :)
I love this pattern and have made at least 8 of them in the last few weeks. Fit is perfect and it’s a fast easy sew.
This shirt slays and conquers! What a wardrobe staple. It can be casual or dressed up with the right accessories and fabric. I am in love. I made my first Concord a couple of days ago and used the Cashmerette sizing calculator. I have to admit the first muslin I made didn’t work very well. It was my error. I carefully remeasured (watching Jenny’s tutorial) and realized I had measured incorrectly. Correct measurements and I’m here for the win. I wear a 44DDD in Wacoal bras. And I’m 5’2” and apple shaped. Here I am in my 20gh with a 1” FBA, sway back adjusted, shoulder seams lengthened by 1.5”, neck curve redrawn, and sleeves shortened by 1” Concord! TaDa!!! Never ever have I had a t-shirt fit so well. Thank you Cashmerette! The next one will get an additional 0.5” FBA 😊. I wore it all day on the farm and running errands and by golly it can go from feeding chickens to picking up groceries in town. Planning my next one already!
Love, love, love this pattern. Finally, a pattern and designer who understands curvy figures! I have made several T-shirts and can't recommend this pattern enough!
I love the fit of this T-shirt. I have never owned a T-shirt that fits so well through the armcye and through the bust. I made the 12G/H with a 1" vertical FBA, lowered the apex with 1" and also made a hollow chest adjustment. I chose the medium length arms and V-neck.
I’ve also hacked the pattern into a tie front crop top - and I never thought I would get one that fits me :-)
