Montrose Top


Pattern format

Elevate your style with the Montrose Top, designed for curves with cup sizes C–H!

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

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!

Je l'ai fait déjà 5 fois et dans des tissus avec un rendu différent.
C'est toujours parfait. Super patron.

A wardrobe basic

The Montrose top is easy to sew up and looks terrific! The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I've made two already and have another two cut out and ready to sew. The pattern is easy to adjust -- I raised the neckline and swapped in the Alton sleeve for a different look. I'm so happy that I purchased this pattern!

Always fits

This is a pattern that will translate well in any fabric. I had a business trip where I needed something special. I found one of my “saved” fabrics and was able to sew something perfect in a few days after work. I’ve sewn it in a basic tencel as well as a fabulous lace for my event. Don’t overlook this chameleon pattern.

Montrose top

This was an excellent pattern with clear, easy to follow instructions. It was easy to work out the right size and the fit was really good. A well designed pattern which is flexible in terms of style and fabric choice. Will definitely buy more patterns from Cashmerette.
