McCall's 6016 Boys Collared Shirt

McCall's Patterns M6016 Infants' Shirts, Shorts And Pants, All Sizes

This is the first boy's pattern I've done, and also the first collared shirt which happened to be "C" on this pattern, the one the boy is wearing.  I, however, did not use contrasting fabric for the cuffs.  What can i say about this shirt.... The collar was surprisingly the easy part compared to putting the arms in.  The instructions weren't hard, the hard part was easing the fabric in, and then sewing around that tiny hole.  It took a little bit of time to get it all where it needed to be.  I imagine that a men's version would be easier because you are not sewing in cramped quarters.  Someone who is not experienced might get a little frustrated.  Other than that, the rest is pretty simple.

Here it is modeled by my Gage:

So what would I rate this?  Probably a 6 on the shirts for putting on the sleeves alone.  Everything else would be about a 4.
