Translation: I sewed the short-sleeve and V-neck version.
The instructions are detailed and easy to understand. However, it fits closer than expected. The next shirt I will then cut a little more generous, but I will definitely sew the pattern often. That was certainly not my last Concord!
ich habe die Version mit kurzem Ärmel und V-Ausschnitt genäht.
Die Anleitung ist ausführlich und gut verständlich. Allerdings sitzt es enger als erwartet. Das nächste Shirt werde ich dann ein wenig großzügiger ausschneiden, aber ich werde den Schnitt definitiv öfter nähen.Das war bestimmt nicht mein letztes Concorde!
I love this pattern! It fits me and looks young and fun! I made the tunic and wanted a cardigan of the same length. I decided to draft a pattern from the Concord with a front opening. It turned out great! I used the higher neckline for the tunic and then the scoop neckline for the cardigan, so that the tunic peaks out above the cardigan neckline. When I made the shorter version of the T with the scoop neckline, I found it a wee bit revealing for me. I will be adjusting it next time.
J'ai beaucoup aimé le patron ainsi que les explications schématisées.
I love how this shirt turned out. I’ve made two so far. Mickey Mouse was my prototype. On the dark gray shirt I took two small darts at the arm hole to smooth it out over the bust. I’m very happy with the results, and look forward to making many more of these.
The concord shirt is awesome for me, it's a top-shirt, honestly! I've made a sports shirt, and now I will make it again as casual shirt ;))
