Here is yet another McCall's 6099 boy's shirt for my son. Just because your pattern may be plain doesn't mean the shirt has to be! I made this, but my son pretty much designed the details on it. I just had to figure out how to make what he wanted.
We went digging thru our button bin to find these cool buttons for his shirt. I was just going to do black, but he had a better idea! He even went thru my Gutermann thread matching up the color to the buttons.
I needed to give the pocket a red background so it would stand out. I was going to use bias tape, but it was too thick and wasn't working for me. I bought a quarter yard of red fabric to trim the pocket and sleeves.
