I once reached a website where a person could make many tops from one basic pattern. I do not recall the name of the company and hope someone can give me ideas. This was for sewing with knits.

Was it Pamela's Patterns? She has one basic shirt pattern and a couple of patterns with numerous variations.

Could it have been Brown Paper Patterns?

ETA: Sorry. The BPP one is for wovens.

Pamela Leggett of Pamela's Patterns (NAYY) sells two patterns for a basic top. The first, # 104, is "The Perfect T-Shirt." It has three types of necklines, the jewel, scoop and "V" and four sleeve lengths, cap, short, 3/4 and long sleeve. An accompanying pattern to this is # 107. It has four additional necklines, ballet, sporty boat neck, square and funnel and also includes two new sleeve styles, the flare and bell sleeves.

I've made The Perfect T-Shirt four tmes, but I must admit, all versions are the short-sleeved scoop neck. Since making my first top, the only changes I've made were to shorten it by 1" and shorten the neckband and sew it in the round. You can see my review here.

Good luck finding the right pattern for you.

If it was recently you saw it, it may have been the Sewaholic Renfrew

This has several sleeve and neckline options.
