arrrrrrgh, mateys! (mccall's 4952)

Two years ago, Samuel wanted to be a pirate.  "That sounds easy," I thought . . . and for the most part, it was.

Since I don't like to just wing it, I used pattern #4952 from McCall's, and the shirt took me three times as long as I thought it would because it had what felt like a thousand pieces to make up the collar, facing, etc.

In the end, I'm always glad that I put in the time because the shirt was also a much higher quality than I thought it was going to be, and Samuel was a pretty proud pirate.
