size 158 for a size 14 girl.  I used 3/4 sleeves and didn't add the ruffles at the neck or sleeves.  Looks like this will be a good basic T pattern to use.
Used the cover stitch on my serger for neck and hems.

This came out really nicely. I am so afraid of knit!

I actually prefer to sew knits.  A serger makes it so easy. Even before I had a serger I figured out what stitches on my sewing machine worked best and I also used a twin needle for top stitching.  I often put tissue paper under a seam I was worried might not turn out right and the tissue paper stabilized enough to get it right.  Then I just tore the paper from the seam.

Very cute!  I love those basic t-shirt/long sleeved t-shirt patterns.  You can use them so much!  I wish I had a coverstitch on my serger.  If I had known when I was buying one that it isn't standard...grrrrr...

I will have to try to figure out the twin needle, and using tissue paper is a great idea.  Thanks for the tips!
