Choosing A Size
Knit garments are designed with negative ease, the actual garment size is smaller than your body measurements. How much smaller is up to you.
I chose the size recommended by body measurements and I love the fit. It isn’t too body conscious, it just skims my frame. However, if I were younger, I suspect I would go down a size to have it be a little more form fitting.
The two critical measurements besides your waist and hip are the high bust measurement and full bust measurement. These measurements will help determine what cup size to use. Having the correct cup size and avoiding a full bust adjustment is so fabulous. If you have ever done a full bust adjustment you will know why — it is a miserable pattern edit. Thank you Cashmerette for giving us a wide selection of cup sizes!
The Cashmerette Concord T Shirt is THE MOST versatile T shirt pattern on the market. The variety of styles you can sew will fill your closet with tons of Concord T Shirts. With all these interchangeable pieces, you can have a closet full of Cashmerette Concord Tee Shirts.
First you can choose one of three lengths — cropped, mid length, and long
