I have seen the name Grainline Studios floating around Pattern Review for a while and was curious, even though this is really quite a simple tee shirt. The pattern contains 4 necklines - crew, scooped, boat, and V - as well as 4 sleeves - long, 3/4, short, and cap. It does seem to be a great TNT to have in the pattern stash. I think it could be converted to a sleeveless tank with a few tweaks to the armscye too.

One of my favorite looks is a black-and-white striped Tee, or navy-and-white. I don't know why but it is very appealing to me. About a year ago, I bought this soft rayon knit in Montreal so it contains nice memories too. My first Lark has a crew neckline and long sleeves. Pretty basic stuff.
I made my usual mods - a little extra in the hip area as well as in the upper arm area. I don't think I needed the extra in the upper arm after all. And it is longer than I anticipated. I curved the lower hem using my French curve so that it is shaped more like a man's shirt. The curve does not look smooth in this picture for some reason.
Now it needs a little breast pocket. This will be a good TNT pattern for all seasons.
