Size Size guide


Pattern format

Elevate your style with the Montrose Top, designed for curves with cup sizes C – H, and standard and full bicep sleeve options!

Despite their simplicity, woven tops can often be hard to fit if you have big boobs, ending up too tight at the bust or baggy at the shoulders, or feeling restrictive when you move. The Montrose was designed specifically for bigger boobs to give you a fantastic fit, and provide a blank slate for you to express your personal style.

This timeless pattern features two variations: View A is a scoop neck blouse with short sleeves and curved back yoke, while View B shows off lace fabrics with a jewel neck, elbow length sleeves, and keyhole back. Whether you choose a delicate, embroidered tulle, stand-out lace, or flirty floral cotton voile, the Montrose Top is sure to be a hit!

This Cashmerette pattern includes:

  • Cup sizes from C to H
  • A sizing calculator which will tell you exactly which size to make
  • A beautifully illustrated and detailed instruction booklet, to guide you no matter your sewing level
  • A full photo sewalong on our blog with tips and techniques that go beyond the instruction booklet

Perfect montrose

I really love my new montrose, perfect for work and casual. Just enough ease to be comfortable but looks semi fitted.

Great Pattern

My first Cashmerette pattern and I'm a new fan.

True to size, don't like the shape

Fits quite well according to the measurements. The front of the shirt is much longer than the back though and makes for some really awkward proportions. The way the slit on the back neck is made isn't very clean.

Fabulous fit and a versatile basic

This pattern is an easy quick sew that can be hacked to create new looks. I’ve made multiple versions and I really appreciate the quality drafting that ensures the pieces go together flawlessly every time. I avoided buying this pattern for a while, considering it too basic. But once I took the plunge, I realised how useful an excellent basic can be and now reach for the pattern regularly. I especially like the mix and match elements with the cashmerette club Alton tunic to switch up the Montrose. Highly recommended 👏👏👏

Montrose top

The Montrose top is a very basic pattern that is easy to fit and can be made to look dressed up OR dressed down depending on your choice of fabric. It is easy to sew and can even be lengthened into a tunic or a dress . Enjoy the simple style lines or add your own. You will like this top so much, you will kick yourself for not cutting out several at a time!
