I'm looking for a T&T fitted t-shirt pattern for a tall lanky girl with a b sized cup.

Any recommendations?

Kwik Sew 4027 is on my list of t-shirt patterns I want to try.

You might try Jalie 2805; there are a zillion reviews of it on this site and it runs from 2T to 52 inch bust. Like Sherwin Williams, it covers the world! Jalie is known for its body conscious fit so be accurate in your measurements and with a 1/4 inch seam allowance there isn't much room for error. So, for the first one, add the length you think she will need, perhaps add extra on the side seams and stitch it up. Be sure you note the changes you made says the voice of experience. Also be sure to check your stretch factor against the guide on the instructions as it can make a huge difference in fit.

I would second the suggestion of Jalie patterns, and agree with everything stated in the reply above.
There a whole slew of styles to choose from, with the majority of them are quite fitted.

I love my Style Arc Riva Raglan T-shirt. I'm not lanky anymore, but I'm tall and fairly small busted for my height (my shape is pretty rectangular) and I've got several versions of this tee that make a regular appearance in my wardrobe. Jalie patterns are good, too, though I haven't tried any t-shirt patterns (since my TNT t-shirt is the Riva Raglan Tee). Good luck with whatever you decide.

I would look at the Jalie's, the Kwik Sew's, and possibly the Burda lineup for a more fitted T.

Depending on the Kwik Sew, you may have to lengthen it, or take in the sides some to get a more narrow fit.

I've tried the big 4 with tweens and I just can't seem to find anything fitted. They seem oversized and boxy. The Kwik Sew's could be like that too but I can fit them better in the top part and narrow out the bottom part if I want to more easily.

Butterick 5215 view A, is very slim fitting. Don't be put off the by the photo. Check the line drawing and fitted garment measurements.

My go to tees are Christine Jonson's basewear one and any of the Jalie tees. The Jalie sweater set is nice, tee and cardi!

Try the Deer and Doe Plantain. It's free, so other than the paper for printing, you have nothing to lose, and it's a download, so immediate gratification! I found it very close fitting at the shoulders, and you can make it narrower at the hem if you like, but it's not as loose as they they imply.There are a ton of photos of it on the web.

I think the SBCC tee is free too, so if she is petite that might work well.
