Testing, testing: Concord T-Shirt

Hey all! Here's my tester version of the latest Cashmerette pattern, the Concord T-shirt!

This pattern is pretty great. It's not just a t-shirt pattern; it has an insane amount of options.

In addition to Cashmerette's signature three cup sizes, the Concord has three hem lengths (cropped, mid or long with a curved and split hem), three necklines (high, V neck, or scoop), three sleeve lengths (short, medium, or long), two sleeve finishes (cuffed or hemmed), and optional sleeve tabs. Phew.

For my tester version, I went with a pretty basic tee... my version is the C/D cup, scoop neck, medium length, hemmed version.

I looove the neckline and the fit in the body, which I think is fitted but not clingy. I think next time I might give my guns a bit more room by widening and lengthening the sleeves just slightly.

The fabric is Kaufman Laguna cotton jersey in Tangerine from the Imagine Gnats shop (affiliate link), a great weight and amount of recovery for the Concord

Can't wait to make another version of the Concord! I'm eyeing the longer, curved hem and those fun tab sleeves. I am so happy to have such a useful pattern in my stash so I can make an arsenal of basic tees!!
