Boy's camp shirt

Good morning dear friends. Pictured above is a cute camp shirt, sewn from an older pattern- McCall's 4164. The shirt is 100% cotton. The fancy stitching detail was my idea. It is done in a shade of grey. Actually, this shirt was sewn some years ago as a prototype. Yesterday, I finished it up for my cute great-nephew's 3rd birthday. We all held his party at a local park, where he really had himself a grand time. Some people think that there are no cute clothing patterns for little boys: wrong. To see a close-up of the fancy stitching, and this pattern's difficulty rating, follow the link below my signature.
Here is a close-up view of the McCall's 4164 boy's shirt. See the stitching detail? Kinda reminds me of a "big boy's" shirt. This shirt does have 4 buttonhole fasteners, plus a roll-over collar and lined front facings. These features earn this pattern a difficulty rating of:


  1. Hi Danice - I don't know why I never noticed that sweet little chicken dress in your header! Do you have a pattern for it, or did you just design it as you went along? I think my little grand-daughter would get a kick out of having one like it, since she likes our chickens.
    Hope all is well with you.

  2. Thank you both. Wendy, that chicken dress is a very old out-of-print Simplicity pattern #7189. Good news, though: Simplicity has recently re-released that same pattern as #1450. The chicken is actually a pocket, and the pattern calls for 2 but I did only one :)
