Up Next ~ Pattern Giveaway by Cashmerette Patterns

Y'all know that I love the Cashmerette Pattern line so when I reached out to pattern makers for giveaways for this month, Jenny was the first person I contacted. 



She offered a pdf version of her Concord T-shirt pattern, my favorite Cashmerette pattern. I've made two of them ~ a basic white t-shirt blogged here and an unblogged print version that I've been wearing this summer over a denim skirt.  

If you think this is a regular t-shirt pattern, think again!  Jenny's highlighted some amazing pattern hacks to this "simple" t-shirt pattern made by an awesome group of sewists. And one of my favorite sewing sisters, Renee of Miss Celies Pants, made four of them this summer. Four amazing versions by a non-plus size sewist because the sizing on this tee is size 12-28 with a cup size of C-H! That alone is worth the price of admission!

So if you've seen all of the wonderful versions of this t-shirt floating around the internet, and still don't own this pattern, I have one more reason why you should desire to win a copy of this pattern...a sew-along. Yes, Jenny has done a step-by-step sew-along for the pattern so any question you may have is answered.

I'm sure you've already realized that today's giveaway is a pdf pattern of the Concord T-Shirt by Cashmerette Patterns. If you'd like to get in on the t-shirty goodness, leave your name in the comments below. Since it's a pdf pattern this giveaway is open to everyone in the sewing universe who'd like to win one. You will have until Wednesday, September 14th at 11:59pm EST to enter this giveaway.  The winner of this pdf pattern will be announced on Saturday, September 17th.



Good luck and Happy National Sewing Month!

  154. I'm so glad to hear it comes in a size 12. I'd been holding off buying it because I've been steadily losing weight since the start of the year (inspired by you, I've now lost about 50 pounds! πŸ˜€). I now have almost no clothes that fit and, certainly none of them are handmade. I'm feeling a bit edgy about that and would live to make a few simple tips to get me covered up!

    Thank you for organising the giveaway (and for including non-Americans). πŸ˜ƒ
