Pattern help

I'm working on a Mami Tomoe cosplay, and I'm having the hardest time finding a pattern similar to her shirt. I want the shirt to look really smooth on me and not particularly blousey. Can anyone give me some advice??? I'm about ready to pull my hair out trying to find a pattern!

This would hug well

But if you want it super smooth, you may want to consider doing a blouse pattern but in tshirt knit or a spandex suit or cotton blend, so it hugs/clings better.

I am working on Mami as well and I'm planning to use Ponte knit, it's slightly heavier than t-shirt material and doesn't look bulky but adds a certain...fluffy look to it?? It's pretty nice when I'm able to find it and if you can't find a good pattern, get a tight fitting t-shirt and then make your own well fitting pattern by having a friend wrap you in ducttape, this is a quick and dirty way of making a corset pattern as well
