My kid wanted a plain gray shirt, so I used Simplicity 2892 to make her this one. It was pretty easy and I think it would be great for someone learning to sew.
The original had lined puffy sleeves, which I thought looked weird, so I just used the pattern piece for the lining.
My daughter is in amazing shape and normally wears a 0-2, however according to the measurements on the back, she is a size 12 (I would be a 14 or 16). Don't let the numbers discourage you and be honest w/ yourselves when choosing the size. It's much easier than wasting your time/fabric sewing something that you are never ever going to fit into.
