    This is the perfect dress to wear on a warm and balmy summers day…

    Im making mine in a lovely, large, French Navy seersucker which Im piping – neck and sleeves – in a liberty bias. I am also extending the sleeves a little as Im more comfortable with that length.

    Im sure I’ll make it more than once!

    I purchased the Montana having seen it on a youtube vlog. I have since made 4 versions of the dress and have a 5th cut out. The pattern is simple to construct and with some minor variations will provide a whole new wardrobe of easy-sew, easy-to-wear dresses for the Summer and through to the Autumn and Winter depending on fabric choices. My sister loves the design and has requested a Montana dress for her birthday in October. Next month I plan to make Denim and Needlecord versions to wear as pinafore dresses. A5-star pattern.

    Really easy sew and looks elegant yet fun. I’ve hardly stopped wearing it since it was finished. I’m planning on making another – again in a soft light jersey. I’m really pleased with it. My daughter wants one too. After the jersey version, I’m going to try a woven fabric one as well. Thanks 🙂

    Made this dress doing my normal back alterations and it was perfect. I love the way it hangs, without to much gathering. I don’t normally make sleeveless dresses but the cap came over my shoulders and draped down beautifully, so I was very happy. I have a second fabric to make it with, and looking forward to it.

    I found the dress ran big. I measured as a size 18, but I ended up taking the dress in to be a size 16 and it still was big. The bodice hit me at my waist, instead of above it, so I had to shorten the bodice also. Because the bodice had been so large, I cut the skirt out on a Size 14 and ended up cutting it down to a size 12. The dress still looked sloppy big on me, so I added tabs on the side with D-Rings so that I could cinch it in and make it look a bit slimmer. I won’t make it again.

    I made this dress in a lovely cotton & lined the bodice in a fine silk / cotton. I love it, it’s a perfect summer dress. The only alteration I made was to add 3cm to the length. I struggled a bit with the bodice but there is a terrific tutorial on this site which was really helpful. I plan to make more of these.

    I love this pattern and the comfortable design. I’ve made two dresses so far. For the first one, I made it as instructed, although trying to figure out how to make the double bodice was a challenge, I managed. For the second dress, I decided to draft facings for both the neck and sleeves. I also sized down the pattern because of the amount of ease in the design. After finishing dress two I decided to alter dress one in order to have it fit better. All in all I love the pattern and my finished products. I’m a decent sewist, but I have to admit your instruction are not very intuitive. They could use a bit more detail.

    This is a really useful pattern It is easy to wear and very comfortable. I made a size 22 with FBA and sway back adjustment. I omitted the side seam pockets and pattern matched patch pockets instead. I love this pattern and have since made a second one with hack of a 3-tier skirt.

    I love this dress! After reading another review, I added elastic to the back, giving a little more definition. The proportions and silhouette work well for me. Very happy !

    Fabulous dress. So far have made one for myself in lightweight cotton/viscose. And one for my daughter in linen mix. Cutting another now in linen mix for myself.
    Great style. Easy to make and wear…AND IT HAS POCKETS! I didn’t line bodice. Made neck facings and just overlocked and narrow hemmed sleeves. Sizing true …and not too oversized.May try one in a knit…perhaps dart bodice and pull skirt narrower as stretch will allow to pull on just to changd silhouette a little. Will have fun trying. Great to sew up during my shielding self isolation. Thank you.

    I love this dress! So easy to sew and very comfortable. I’ve made two and have had lots of compliments. For my second dress, I used checked linen and I put bias strips on the neck and armholes. I also shortened the bodice as it suited the fabric better.

    I made this in a liberty rayon and it’s very comfortable. I wanted a bit more shape in the bodice so I put elastic in the back to pull it in. However if I was living in a hotter climate I’d probably make it ‘as is’ as it would be cooler.

    I made this dress up in a heavy weight linen I bought from Ikea, of all places.
    Easy instructions, I lined it with a matching cotton as double linen would have been too bulky.
    I would call this a wear it tonight dress, super easy with no hand sewing.

    Montana dress. I made a 16 on my bust size but could have made a 14. Have taken it in but love the shape of the extended sleeve. I put a deep hem on it to give it some weight. I made it in a light linen. I do love how the patterns always fit together so well.

    This is my ‘go to’ dress pattern at the moment. I have made three to date with more in the pipeline. Each dress has been adjusted slightly, I have lengthened the sleeve, changed neckline, added another tier to the skirt, etc. There are so many possibilities.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
