I am going to include instructions for a baggier sweater as well (the second set up numbers, in parentheses). This might fit Barbie; if you have a chance to try it, please let me know.
Once you have 73(81) sts on the needles, p 1 row.
Divide for sleeves: slip 11(13) sts onto holder, set 15(17) sts aside on a DPN or another holder, slip 21(23) sts onto holder, set aside 15(17) sts, slip 11(13) sts onto holder.
Work sleeves: join yarn from bobbin to each set of 15(17) sts, k 1 row, p 1 row, k 2 rows, BO in k.
Continue where you left off from the body sts: k10, k2tog, k19, k2tog, k10. 41 sts.*
For a classic t-shirt shape (as shown), continue straight for the length desired, k 2 rows, and BO.
For a shaped t-shirt, continue as follows:
Set-up row (after row marked with *): p10, place marker, p21, place marker, p10. Work 2 rows even.
Row 1: K to marker, slip marker, ssk, k to 2 sts before marker, k2tog, slip marker, k to end.
Row 2: P all sts.
Row 3: K to 2 sts before marker, ssk, slip marker, k to next marker, slip marker, k2tog, k to end.
Row 4: P all sts.
Rep above 4 rows once more. 33 sts.
K 1 row, p 1 row. (Leave markers in place.)
Begin increases for hips: *K to 1 st before marker, m1, k1, slip marker, k1, m1, rep from * once, k to end.
P next row.
Repeat this row until you have 45 sts (three repeats of the above two rows). K 2 rows. BO. Sew sleeve seams. Weave in all ends. Sew snaps onto the back (or, be like me, and pin the shirt on so that you can quickly photograph it!).
