Completed T-shirt

The measurements below are for Stretch Knit fabric, with the stretch of the fabric going  across the width of the shirt.  To use cotton non-stretch fabric add one to two inches to the width of the pattern, on the top (not sleeve) only.

Size 3 to 4 : Cut two pieces of fabric 12 x 16  for the body and 2 x 13 for the sleeves.

Size 5 to 6: 13 x 16 and 3 x 14

Size 7 to 8: 14 x 17.5 and  3 x 15

Size 10 : 15 x 18  and 3.5 x 15

Size 12: 16 x 18 and 3.5 x 16

Cutting the front

neck line.

Folding your front piece in half widthwide (the shorter measurement) measure in 4 inches from the top and place a marker.  Mark down 3 " on the fold and place a marker. Draw a curved line between the two to give you the front neckline. Cut on the line. You can do the same in the back if you desire only going down 1" on the fold. It's not important to do so, I usually leave my back flat across.  Sew your shoulder seams.  Fold the fabric around then neckline down a quarter of an inch to the inside and sew around, then fold down 1/4 inch again and sew around to finish the neckline.  You could also add 2" of ribbing folded in half for a boys neckline instead of making the folded over neck.
 

Sewing the shoulders and

putting the sleeves on.

Fold your sleeve piece in half length wise and place a pin.  Matching this pin to the shoulder seam , right sides together , sew on your sleeves.  Then matching the side seam, and bottom of the sleeves together sew up that seam.

Press your T-shirt and start another!

Finishing side

seams.

Fold up your bottom seam 1" to the wrong side of the shirt, pin and sew in place for the hem.  Do the same with the sleeve using a 1/2" hem.  I usually serge around the edges before sewing but, it's not necessary , just looks neater.
