From the designer:

<em> A year later and the Nothing But a T-Shirt has offspring: the baby and kids’ tee! This tee is done in a machine-washable cotton/acrylic blend in a gauge close enough to the original pattern that you can make mom & kids matching tees. The unisex version is for a straight tee with simple shoulder shaping and would be perfect for any little one. If you knit the tee in a solid color, this would be a great beginner sweater pattern. And if you’re up to the challenge, make a chart of your kid’s initial or favorite character and add it to the front! The “girly” version is for little ladies who want a tee just like mommy’s with a slightly slimmer fit than the unisex version and even some faux waist shaping. You might try a picot edge or a ruffle around the bottom for a real girly look and don’t forget some sparkle yarn for the colorwork on the front!
