Floral Montrose top

Cashmerette Montrose Cotton

This Montrose Top from Cashmerette is going to be a Tried-n-True pattern in my wardrobe, I can feel it in my bones!

I bought this fabric as a remnant from Nerida Hansen in Australia. It sat in my stash for quite a while because it was a much thinner cotton than I had anticipated, and I also wasn’t sure if it was very ‘me’.

Turns out my fears were quite unfounded, because I wear this top all the time! Even though I sewed the high neckline without a keyhole opening at the back, I find it easy enough to get on and off, and since there’s so many colours on the shirt, it really goes with most of my wardrobe.

Size Details: I sewed the C/D cup bodice in a size 20, grading out to size 22 as the waist starts to curve out. I’m also using the Full Bicep sleeve, which is maybe my favourite part of this pattern.
