The Girls’ Weekender Tunic is a PDF sewing pattern intended for light to medium weight sweater knits. This is a loose-fit style with dropped shoulders. Depending on the fabric choice, you could have a cozy sweater, a spring/fall transition piece, or a swimsuit cover-up. Don’t forget to buy the matching women’s pattern! This will be part of a fantastic Mommy and Me duo.
This pattern includes:
- Short sleeve and long sleeve options,
- Thumb hole cuffs, hemmed sleeves, or rolled sleeves,
- Hood, funnel neck, or crew neck,
- Placket with lace up detail, and
- Regular hem, High-low hem, and banded hem options.
Notions are dependent on style chosen, but fabric requirements and size chart can be seen in one of the pictures. This pattern is intended for a light to medium weight sweater knit with at least 25% stretch. Extra fabric may be required to match patterns or stripes or if you need additional length. Need some good ideas of where to buy sweater knit? I highly recommend the Purple Seamstress on Facebook. I have also had good luck with Urban Rag Trader on Etsy.
This PDF sewing pattern comes in sizes 2-18. Included in your purchase is a professional tutorial that includes pictures and drawings to help you sew up your new favorite tunic. The files also include professionally drawn pattern pieces formatted for 8.5×11, A4, and A0 printers. PLEASE only use the A4 formatted pattern pieces if you live in a country where the standard paper size is A4!
