I have made 5 Simplicity 4076 t-shirts and I'm feeling bold! I like the look of the Renfrew Sewaholic shirt and I can buy those locally. Interested in Jalie, but that means an order and I am back to work soon. The downloadable Skinny B*itch looks nice, but I am reluctant to do the cut and paste business. Big 4? I like sleeves and the possibility of a rather modest neckline, but I am happy to add a modesty panel if I like the shirt enough. I work with babies and don't like too much exposure while working.

I like Simplicity 1716 and 1916. Both are easy. Kwik Sew 3915 and 3740 is almost like the Refro. There are several easy New Look that have quite a few reviews too New Look 6648, 6470, 6940, and 6150. You have quite a few choices so it just depends on the neckline you want. I have made almost all of these and they are easy and quick. Jalie offer quite a few that have been reviewed alot. I love to make knit tops-they are almost fool proof

I like 0041 J Stearns. It's a little different and fits well.

I have made 3 long sleeved Renfrews which turned out nicely. I can recommend this pattern.

Fabric.com's free Fringe Scarf T has a nice curvy fit. It has an optional seamed front so you can mix colors or slip a ruffle or other trim in. If you don't want the scarf, you get a soft V neck that will curve with a binding. Cut the scarf longer and you can tack/drape it like a cowl.

Tunics are being shown for winter. Does anyone have a favorite long-sleeve tunic or Henley neck pattern that's fitted?

I have been using M6747 for my tee's lately. I've done all the sleeve lengths and love the more loose fit. I have sewn this 7 times. When I just want a quick tee, I don't do the front tab. I like the back seam. Seems to work well for sway back modifications.

I just found out you can download the old favorite Jalie t-shirt from their website.

Jalie 2005

Sorry just read further you don't want to cut and paste.

Thanks everyone. Great ideas!

I like the fringe festival t-shirt, but it has short sleeves and I am looking toward fall now. Has anyone drafted a long sleeve for this one?

ETA - I have made this shirt and already have a pattern made up with fba, etc.
