I would like to add that even though stiffer/thicker fabric might look better for school shirts (so they keep their shape better) a completely non-stretch fabric makes it hard to lift your arms if you follow a basic t-shirt pattern. You need something with at least a little bit of stretch, or accommodate with folds in the back like on men's dress shirts (but that would just look silly on a sailor uniform shirt...).

This is what the back looks like for the Green Pepper Pattern: Sailor Neptune

(It's a little puckery at the sides but that's because I made the leg elastic larger thinking it would be more comfortable, but it kind of kept it from keeping it's shape and the skirt kept riding up *gak*)

Most pictures aren't going to be from the back. This is the only picture I've got from the back, but I'd rather have one seam at the back than a noticeable one on the side.
