Here is one solution.  For a given date @dt it calculates the previous Monday to Sunday week.
SET DATEFIRST 1 -- Week starts on Monday

declare @dt date
set @dt = getdate()

select dateadd(d, -datepart(dw, @dt) - 6, @dt) PreviousMonday,
       dateadd(d, -datepart(dw, @dt), @dt) PreviousSunday

/* Output

PreviousMonday PreviousSunday
-------------- --------------
2012-04-02     2012-04-08
