Concord T-Shirt Inspiration from Ready to Wear

It’s an exciting time here at Cashmerette! Our best-selling Concord T-Shirt is now available in sizes 0-32!

T-shirts are often taken for granted, but for those of us with large busts, it can be a challenge to get the right fit. If the shirt fits in the bust, our armscyes are often falling off the shoulder; if the shoulders are spot on, our t-shirts are getting over-stretched across the bust, which can be uncomfortable or distort a cute print!

Enter the Concord T-Shirt! Cashmerette’s solution to droopy shoulders and too-tight busts. Now in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H, we hope to serve sewists who struggle to find one of the most ubiquitous wardrobe staples out there—the t-shirt.

Let’s get inspired! The Concord can be anything from a basic white tee to a glamorous cropped top—or even a dress!

Basic Tee Inspiration for the Concord T-Shirt


You can’t go wrong with some basics! Each view of the Concord lends itself to some version of an everyday top. Full tuck, French tuck, or untucked, a simple, well-fitting t-shirt will become one of your favorite wardrobe staples!

Cropped Inspiration for the Concord T-Shirt


Cropped shirts are all the rage, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Depending on your fabric choices and penchant for drama, you can use the cropped view of the Concord T-Shirt to create comfy loungewear or a statement top that would fit right in on an evening out.

    What happens if your fabric has more than 20% stretch?

    1. That’s fine – it may just be a little looser on you as you move about. If you want a slim-fitting t-shirt you may want to go down a size.

        Thanks so much!

    For my first Concord I’m de-stashing a plum rayon jersey. I’m super excited about the lengthen-to-a-tunic hack…any ideas on how much additional yardage is required?

    1. Hi Alyssa – it really depends on how much additional length you want to add! Given the way the pieces are laid out you’ll need that much more for the front and back – so if you want to add 7 inches you’ll need 14 inches more fabric.

Let me know what you think!
