How long does it take to sew a shirt

I made more shirts using the same pattern I used for the pink t-shirt. These have long sleeves as I modified the pattern. Mainly I was curious about the time it takes to sew one of these shirts. In this first video, I'm sewing the shirt in real time, without edits.

And in the second one, I used a timer to get the total time from intact t-shirt to a ready made altered shirt.

Making the neckline of the yellow bodice

In this video, I'm showing how to alter a dress pattern to make the notched neckline of the yellow bodice shown in an earlier video. You need to know how to make a dress with a lining, because I'm only showing the changes needed for the pattern and what needs to be done differently when sewing the dress.

I finished a winter coat that had been in progress since the fall break. First, here's a video about making an inside pocket for it. 

After that, it was time to sew the lining in place.
