    I love this sweater! It’s so cozy and flattering. I used a 2-way, 40% stretch FT for one and 4-way 50% hacci stretch sweater knit for the other – I love both of them! I also appreciate that the cowl of the Adrienne is interchangeable, one more option to the endless list!

    I love the way this sweater fits!

    A perfect staple item! I looks like just a sweater, but you have to have one and wear it to undestand it’s THE sweater! It rly is!

    I found the instructions easy to follow and the pattern went to together quickly. The finished project is cozy, and my husband complimented it. I will be making more of these, I especially like the part of the instructions that talks about customizing your garment. The detail instructions and ease of assembly will keep me coming back for each release.

    This pattern is packed with instructions to ensure you get the perfect fit. It goes together very nicely and looks awesome.

    As soon as I saw this sweater on IG, I had to have it. The shape and fit is definitely my style. I purchased it using the 15% coupon code in the newsletter. I sewed it up the same day I purchased the pattern. I absolutely love Jessica’s e-book instructions/recommendations. They are very in-depth and taught me quite a few things that I didn’t know. I had some trouble printing the pattern but found out that my papers were not stocked neatly in my printer. Her steps for lengthening the pattern is key to a great fitting sweater. I used baby french terry for testing the pattern, but, will be using something with a little more body, to give the cowl a bit of firmness. Love, love, love the Nora.

    Nora, oh Nora….how I love thee….lol.
    This sweater is amazing and comfortable, and this pattern allows me to make a perfect fit every time!

    Easily the most flattering sweater I have made. Can’t wait to make some more up for Fall and Winter. Thanks for the great pattern…

    My favourite sweater ever, so flattering even for my very plus sized body and so comfy! I’ve made 8 so far with all the available options and am not finished yet! It also works great for t-shirts from light fabrics and is definitely the most versatile pattern I own.

    Made Nora with a funnel neck. Loved it!! The instructions were clear. I installed grommets and had sewn the drawstrings for first time. Both came out great! This is one super comfortable sweater. I will want to make another top using different fabric without funnel that can be worn either in the spring or fall.

    Perfection! This is a great slouchy top, perfect for sweatshirt knits and lighter jersey alike. I already have 3 and plan to make one in every colour. It hides a multitude of sins and is a nice easy sew.

    I especially love how detailed the DIBY instructions are in general. Perfection ♥

    Beautiful and flattering sweater pattern with amazing instructions! I love DIBY Club patterns because the instructions are so in depth. I need a FBA on most patterns and I had avoided making tops like this for fear that the FBA would be complicated. DIBY’s instructions helped me navigate and successfully make 2 Nora sweaters that fit my bust and my waist! I could never by a RTW sweater that does that 🙂 Thanks DIBY Club for making my sewing skills improve!!!!

    My all time favorite sweater is a brushed baby FT Nora. It’s so comfy and cozy. The fit is fantastic and flattering! I can’t wait for fall weather to roll around again (my favorite time of year) just so I can make a hundred more Noras. 🙂

  14. Melanie Long (verified owner)

    This is was the first sweater I made for myself that my husband actually commented on! I’m taking that as an excuse to buy more sweater knits so I can fill my closet with Nora!!

  15. becky.a.petty (verified owner)

    I really like the split hem on this top and the deep scoop is super flattering too! Again, top notch instructions and fitting advice, thanks DIBY, you help me look HAWT!

    This is my absolute favorite sweater pattern! So easy to follow, quick to see up and versatile!!

    I bought this because my daughter wanted a slouchy, comfy winter jumper to snuggle into on a cold day. This fit the bill exactly. She doesn’t live at home so I had to guess the sizing, and because the measurements provided are so clear, I was spot on. I would not hesitate to recommend this to a friend. Needless to say my daughter adores it, and it goes straight from the washing machine into the drier then on to her body 😀

    The instructions are so clear and easy to follow, and she provides examples and short videos if you get stuck or (in my case) are intimidated by the next step. I’ve made two of this since October! Really excellent pattern

    I love this sweater! I have worn it for work and as well as at home. The directions were clear and easy to follow, as will all DIBY Club patterns. I’ll make more with the different neckline and sleeve options in the future.

  20. Claudine Propes (verified owner)

    I love this sweater. It’s like a sweatshirt, so comfortable. I made two out of French Terry, one with the funnel neck, and one with the banded neck. The instructions are easy to follow. I love the pages option on the pattern so you can print only the size you need. Great!!

  21. clbiehl (verified owner)

    This is my fall back sweater pattern. I’ve tried them all, and I always come back to this one. The fit is spot on, and I love a good turtle/cowl neck. I’ve even widened the cowl for my preference.

  22. Phyllis Burgett (verified owner)

    Love these patterns. Haven’t made this one yet

  23. Synthia (verified owner)

    Love the Nora sweater, DIBY patterns are easy to sew, great instructions.

  24. L O’Neill (verified owner)

    Nora is such a cozy sweater. I love the huge cowl neck and the length makes it perfect for leggings or jeans. Easy to follow instructions and the fit it great.

    Great basic with multiple options, a must
