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!
This was my first pattern from Cashmerette, and I was thrilled with it. The layers on the pdf made it super easy to cut out, even with grading between a few sizes. And when I emailed with fitting questions I got very helpful responses quicker than I expected. Not to mention how helpful the sewalong blog posts were for doing the step-by-step. I don't think I even used the printed directions. I used this pattern to alter a bunch of RTW oversize cotton t-shirts (shaped the sides and re-set the sleeves), and I'm really happy with the results. I'm looking forward to finding some fabric I love that's actually as stretchy as what the pattern calls for, I think a shirt from scratch would be even more amazing. Cashmerette is now at the top of my list the next time I want to try a new pattern.
Great pattern, I had a different pattern I was using and was quite happy with but I had heard good things about this one so it was my first Cashmerette pattern and I was thrilled with it. I’ve made 3 so far and plan on making many more, I have also joined the Cashmerette club something I would never have thought I would do
I made this first a few years back and was so pleased with it that I made a couple of dozen! Years went by and gradually my concords sustained shrinkage and wear and so it was time to restock. I joined the cashmerette club this year and have been avidly watching the fitting masterclasses and so decided to use my learning to refit the pattern for my current body shape. I graded a smaller size for neck and shoulder and scooped out the back neck and easily had a well fitting pattern. It worked out so well that I went stash diving and have started making all my short jersey lengths into concords! Highly recommended 👏👏👏this pattern rocks for big boobs and I live in these beauties with jeans or calders (also an awesome pattern!)
