Montrose Top

from $16

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

Dependable Fit

I had nothing to wear to a business event and remembered the Montrose. Downloaded and used the lace I figured I’d take out and pet once in a while. It was perfect for what I needed! Sewed for two nights and wore it the third. 10GH. 41/ 32/ 43

Fantastic basic top!

I have made three so far. It fits well, had a nice shape without being tight. I have lengthened it, shortened the sleeves, and tried a version with a curved hem. I love this pattern and how easy it is to customize!

Montrose shirt

I loved making this shirt, it was easy to sew with great instructions. I overestimated my size so it is a little large but can’t wAit to make the next one a bit smaller.

Montrose top

Made the top for my daughter without her with me; in fact, I haven't seen her in person in 3 years. Did the sizing by using her measurements. She loved the top and has requested that I make a couple more for her -- it FITS and she is hard to fit! The only change I made was to use a traditional neckline facing using the back yoke as one piece of the facing. She also would like the width at the shoulders of the lower neckline made a 1/4 inch smaller
