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!

- Cup sizes from C to H
- A sizing calculator which will tell you exactly which size to make

Fabric Requirements & Measurements
The Montrose was my first Cashmerette pattern and the fit was great on my second attempt. Bust 18G, waist graded to 22 and hips to 24. I had to lower the arm scye slightly and also increased the shoulder to bust apex length by 1,5cm. I prefer a longer top and increased the length by 5cm.
This is the first Cashmerette pattern that I have tried, it did not disappoint! Taped together easily, I liked the different options it offered, instructions were very easy to follow. I have made 2 so far and already have a 3rd planned. It make for a dressier blouse rather than a casual top. I have done one in lace, very nice!
Perfect casual shirt pattern -you really made it easy!
I really love my new montrose, perfect for work and casual. Just enough ease to be comfortable but looks semi fitted.
My first Cashmerette pattern and I'm a new fan.
