The Lester Top is a great way to look a little fancy, but still feel super cozy. This is similar to the Leslie Top, Tunic, and Dress, but made for people in your life who prefer the men’s size chart. The Lester Top is intended for thick fabrics such as fleece and sweatshirt knit. French Terry and thinner fabrics will also work, but the fit will be looser and have more drape. I PROMISE the zipper and placket are not hard! We demystify the process with videos, drawings, and photos. YOU CAN DO IT and feel awesome when it’s done!
The Lester Top includes:
- Men’s sizes XS – 6XL (size chart is last image)
- Short or long sleeves that can be hemmed or finished with cuffs.
- Optional thumbhole cuffs
- Three-piece hood or shawl collar
- Kangaroo or welt pocket
- Hem or band finish
- Link to video on how to do a full tummy adjustment
- See our testers version in this awesome video!
This listing is for a downloaded PDF sewing pattern, NOT a finished product. Your download should immediately pop up after purchasing, but you can also log into your account at any time and download the package again. Your downloads will include a professionally drawn pattern with trimless pages (now with diamond corner markers) and layers.
The pattern pieces included are formatted for 8.5×11, A4 (typically outside of the US), and A0 printers. We’ve even included a projector file so all of the pieces are on one page! Please remember to NOT use the A4 pattern unless you are located outside of the US and own an A4 printer and A4 paper. The A0 pattern is specifically designed for large format printing. You have permission from 5 out of 4 Patterns to have this pattern printed at your local copy shop.
The separate tutorial download includes hyperlinks to help you navigate to whichever options you’re interested in doing. It also includes professionally drawn images for each tutorial step as well as pictures for steps that might be a little tricky. We take great pains to make the tutorial as clear as possible! We’ve even included links to our YouTube channel, where you can find video tutorials on certain steps.
