The Montrose looks lovely in a solid; dress it up in silk or down in a cotton eyelet for a classic pairing piece.

Go bold in a fun flowy print! Rayon or silk prints really shine in the Montrose, but a light cotton lawn or double gauze is great for a more casual option.

Pair a lace or sheer Montrose with a high-waisted skirt for a fabulous day to night look!

When it comes to fabric, the world is your oyster with the Montrose Top! Depending on what you choose, you can create a perfect daytime top or a stunning special occasion blouse!

Printed lawns and rayons are some of our favorites! We even found a cotton lawn version of the scuba we used on the Rivermont cover!

A special lace makes for a stunning statement Montrose Top; I like laces with a little something different like geometric lines or embroidery.

Here are some extra fun and different fabrics — overprinted guipere lace, unique eyelet, and printed silk mesh.

    Beautiful! I envision extending the lines of the lace version into an overdress, worn with a simple sheath beneath.

    I’ll probably make a bunch of them! Certainly silk is high on my list and linen for the summer. Thank you for creating another fabulous pattern Jenny 🙂

Let me know what you think!
