This is the best t-shirt pattern! It fits my boobs wonderfully without being too clingy elsewhere. I will be making more of these for sure.
Have made two Concord tops and will be making many more.
I was delighted with my Concord, I was able to select the neckline, length and sleeve style straight from the pattern and I didn’t need to make any adjustments to fit the bust ( which with most pattern brands I would). The instructions were very clear and I enjoyed making it. I’ve bought several other Cashmerette patterns as a result and I look forward to making those too.
I’ve already made a few of these, with scoop neck and with v-neck, but all with short sleeves as I live in the tropics. They are comfortable and have become my go-to “uniform.” The fit is great, no adjustments needed, and I’m happy that they’re cut a little longer.
This was my first attempt at making a piece of clothing for myself so I was a bit nervous. The pattern was easy to cut out and the instructions to cut my fabric were also clear. I had trouble with the neck band but that was my inexperience and not the pattern! It's a bit wonky in places (due to my lack of skills) but I will be making many more of these. A wonderful comfortable and beatifully fitting pattern.
Finally I can start trying to make clothes that will fit my bust! Thank you
