The Weekender Top and 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. There is also a kids’ version available so you can create the perfect matching outfits. Check out the Weekender Top and Tunic Bundle for a discount!

Notions are dependent on style chosen, but fabric requirements and size chart can be seen in the last picture. This pattern is intended for light to medium weight knit with at least 25% stretch. I originally intended this pattern to be for sweater knits, but any knit with a nice drape will work. Extra fabric may be required to match patterns or stripes or if you need additional length.

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.

This pattern has so many options, all of which are a nice quick sew. I’ve made the hooded lace up placket version and also a sleeveless crew neck version for layering. The instructions are great and it is on my list to sew more!

This was my first 5OO4 pattern. The instructions are well put together. I made the placard which was a first for me. I already have two more planned using the different variations.
The Weekender is a great pattern with tons of options. It’s easy and quick to assemble. I fashioned mine into a swimsuit cover, and it is perfect! Thanks for another amazing pattern!

The Weekending Tunic is my favorite top to make this winter. There are so many different options for the neckline and sleeves, that even though they’re all the same pattern they look like completely different shirts. The directions are easy to follow and it sews up so quickly. There are videos to help you with each variation too. I love 5oo4!!
