Well, one thing you could do is find a white tube top that would work and then dye it blue instead of making it.
Or you could find a pattern for a tube top at a fabric store. Refer to McCall's and Simplicity patterns online. You might need a stretchy fabric, so make sure you find out how to sew with stretchy fabric. I don't know how!

Yeah it looks pretty much like a princess-seamed, boned bodice made from a stretch denim or some other medium weight fabric. Just go looking for a pattern that has a bodice like that and you should be fine. It's pretty common.

Check through patterns for bridal wear - you'll find a base pattern if you want to do it with seams like that.

You can always check the Resident Evil thread too :)

There's plenty of Jills in there that'd love to help you as well ^_^
