Fiona Belli: need help figuring out a pattern!

I'm working on cosplaying Fiona Belli, of Haunting Ground. I've made a collage of her for reference. I'm trying to figure out a pattern for her shirt. I have an idea, but I don't know how well it'd work out. 61 I hope it's understandable. I'm not used to making such complex cosplays. I haven't got a clue about puffy sleeves. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's nice to see another Fiona cosplayer! I have not made her main outfit, but I think tutorials like this may be useful if you need help with her puffy sleeve.
I think the bronze strips would be the cuff band mentioned in the pattern. You would just need to extend the sleeve further with a second part that goes to the wrists. Hope this helps, good luck!

You've kind of stumped me on this one; There's nothing holding that shirt in that configuration but the artist's willpower. Why they haven't slid off her shoulders already is an eternal mystery... cut any shirt's neckline too wide and it'll be off your shoulders before you turn around.

The only thought that comes to my virus-laden mind is that maybe you should reinforce the neckline at the sleeves (like with boning, wire, or piping) to help keep them on the shoulder.

If you can get that worked out, I think your pattern is right on the money. And Amara's link is a great one for generating the sleeves, as long as you have a thick (4"?) cuff at the bottom that is tight to the arm but not so tight you can't get your fist through it.
