I didn't count the hours, but it took hours. The yoke insert was roughly 4-5 inches by 10. I'd guess an hour of ironing the pleats and 4-5 hours of smocking. Then the actual sewing of the shirt took about an hour or so, not too long. And it only took that long because the arm holes are entirely bound.
