Pattern Review: True Bias Lora

Cortney Top & Dress

In case you missed it, Cortney is an oversized top and dress drafted for woven fabrics. The pattern features a slightly dropped shoulder and comes with 2 sleeve options: a pleated sleeve and a set in sleeve with no gathers/pleating. Both the top and dress have a front placket closure and mandarin collar with 3 buttons, so go on and whip out that buttonhole foot again. The best part about this pattern, (other than the sleeves) is its size inclusivity. Cortney starts at a size 2 (bust of 31”) and goes up to size 30 (bust of 59”).


The Tempo sundress features a darted front bodice, and an optional elasticated or shirred centre back. As with many other Love Notions patterns, Tempo comes in two different bust sizes: the standard bust and the full bust, which vastly improves the bust fit on many without the need for an FBA. The size range? Temp ranges from XS to 5XL i.e. from a 33” bust up to a 57.5” bust. Hip hip hooorayyyyy for size inclusivity!
