Fortunately she loaned this one to me before we moved so I could sew myself one for our Texas summers! She's still searching through her vast pattern collection to find another Vogue Montana pattern I'd now like to sew.

This was a fun sewing project. I've been wanting to sew this design for the past few years, and am happy that I found the time to finally do so.
