I've made 4 Montrose Tops in the last few weeks and all have fitted very well and so are comfortable. It has been such a relief to have a pattern that I can trust. I will be back for more Cashmerette patterns.
Thank you Cashmerette for starting your plus size pattern company! It was a joy to sew up the montrose top and need very few alterations, just moved the shoulders in and increased back collar. I added a ruffle to the sleeve hem for some extraness and want a bell sleeve in leopard print. Ive had loads of compliments on my montrose and im excited to make more. The appleton is next on my to sew list. Great job Jenny
I tried this pattern choosing size according to bust measurement and made some adjustments where i know i need to. It fitted nicely on first go but I think I may add som fisheye darts to front and back and put a zipper in the side. I find that I like the bust area to fit really well to distract from my less than flat tummy. Thanks for another great pattern. Just a little wish here - a nice classic blazer/jacket to dress up or down and to pull together outfits. Seriously though your patterns are the ones I have to make least adjustments to. Love, love, love them
I just finished my first Montrose top in View A. It was a relief not to be bogged down with making all sorts of pattern adjustments - the full bicep adjustment slows me down the most, especially since I'm not convinced I'm doing it correctly. Thank you again and again for including the full bicep adjusted sleeve as an option. This pattern has clear instructions, even including stitch length suggestions! I'm an adventurous beginner at sewing and was able to follow the instructions without difficulty. I'm looking forward to making different versions, from casual to more formal. I was on the hunt for a "tried and true" pattern and I think I have one now!
Was so excited to discover Cashmerette patterns. I'm so tired of things swimming on my shoulders I'd they fit my bust, and it's so nice to have a top I can just cut out and have it fit first time. Can make a whole top in a couple of hours. Planning on making several as a work 'uniform'. Can't wait to try more Cashmerette patterns.
