McCalls M4206 "collared shirt"- Norris Danta Ford walks you through a men's bowling shirt. It's a button down loose shirt with no collar stand. Norris is articulate and lays out the steps in an easy to follow way. He finishes his inside seams by serging them. This pattern has the twist of adding two contrast panels to the front.
Angela Crayton walks you through a 1940s ladies casual button down summer shirt without a collar stand. Angela talks at a fast clip. By changing the speed to 75% of normal, the action is easier to follow. Her result is a more upscaled look, somewhat utilitarian. This is acheived by using French seams, making and inserting shoulder pads and an upturned machine sleeve hem.
