I've just reviewed your pattern and tutorial on making the 2 Hour Top. I failed to find a size the pattern is for, nor a print-size confirmation square so I know I'm printing at full size.

Pattern link does not open for me. Can someone please forward to me? Thanks. Jo Ann

what if I am a larger size?

Hi saezme! If you're curious about increasing the pattern's size, you can contact the blogger directly on this page on her blog: Hope this helps!

I love the fact that it takes just one yard of fabric to make this top. The raglan sleeve and rounded curved bottom of the top add to the overall design. The elbow length sleeves are really nice. It really does take just 2 hours to make. I would consider lengthening the top just a bit.

This is a universally flattering design that would work well with either knit fabric or a woven. Add some small shoulder pads and open the front and it could be a really smart jacket with heavier fabric. The neckline is very flattering and it is nice to make a new garment in such short time! Thanks for sharing!

This fabulous 2 hour top pattern which can be made in my choice of fabrics, is by far one of ny favorites. I had a top in this style and liked the fit of the garment.

Do I have to use a knit? Or can I get away with using wovens?

I love wearing simple tops like this to showcase a great statement necklace. I really like the shape of this one, too!

J'aime ce site mais j'ai un problme, je suis franaise et je ne peux pas toujours traduire ce qui m'intresse, mais sinon c'est parfait Isabelle
