Buy the Baby/Child/Teen Fons Shirt and Lena Dress and Top sewing pattern from WISJ Designs. Fons is a shirt for boys and girls with cap sleeves and a colour block version. It’s a perfect project for beginners, and nearly all stretch fabrics are a great match with Fons. Lena is a dress or top with the same cap sleeves as Fons, but with a top and bottom piece. You can choose gathers at the front and/or back, or a pleat at the back. There’s a version for stretch fabrics and one for woven fabrics.

A matching women’s version is available here.
