    I was part of the testing team for the Nicolette. This was my first experience with a DIBY CLUB Pattern. What I found was a designer team that cares, care about the wearer, cares about fit, cares about women and cares about putting out their BEST. I tested and wear a 16 Plus in most patterns and this was is no exception so I found the sizing to be spot on. As with most women we grade the pattern to fit our shape. I started at plus 16 and graded to a plus 20 in the hips and I really love the fit. I love the choices of a plain or colorblocked top and/or dress. The tutorial that comes with this well drafted pattern will walk you through fit issues and teach you what you may need to know about getting your great fit. You will come back to this pattern again and again!

    Not only is this shirt super cute, but there are amazing custom fit adjustments in the instructions! This shirt fits better than any other item of clothing I own. I LOVE it!

    I’ve sewn several DIBY patterns and they are always my favorite, the Nicolette is no exception. The fit is always spot on and the options are limitless. Color-blocking is trending right now and I love that this pattern takes out the guesswork. But what I most appreciate about DIBY’s patterns are the tutorials. I have been sewing for myself for one year and in the first couple of months I really struggled to figure it all out. I did a ton of research and made many mistakes. For example, FBA’s. if you’ve tried to figure one out on your own, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s HARD! There are so many different methods, but nobody really explains their way. Then I found DIBY patterns and it made me really appreciate the thorough directions. AND VIDEO TUTORIALS! I think we all learn best by watching. There is always at least one video tutorial per pattern.

    I have only gotten started and am new to PDF patterns. But this one has great instructions and easy to assemble. I am currently working on grading the pattern to my measurements so I haven’t sewn it yet, but I am an experienced seamstress and the instructions and quality of the pattern is excellent. Don’t hesitate to try this pattern.

    I love this shirt! I’ve made it twice so far — and there are many more to come. The fitting instructions are outstanding: I gained the confidence to make a garment that actually fits me! Highly recommended for all sewists. Beginners should not be afraid! Also much appreciated are the reminders to stop and take a breath during the process of getting your pattern measured and adjusted.
