Hi melbadelony,
Do you have a fabric store close to where you live? If you do, you can check there for patterns on chinese style tops and modify the pattern to become more like korra's. Hope this helps!

View D from this pattern would probably work with some minor edits. I would suggest a stretchy material to get the tightness of her shirts.

Alter a turtleneck. The setting is based off 1920s, which means that they did, in fact, have stretch fabric.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.

Alight what I did for my korra shirt was I bought the light blue and white fabric (I used Lycra which is very stretchy; to get the muscle shirt kinda feel to it cause it fits snug on her)
And I did a pattern of a tshirt I had and altered it by just adding the colar and taking away the sleeves
It working perfectly fine since both materials were stretch and what not
I used the same fabric for the shirt for the arm band and spools for the hair the we're just dyed a bit darker since there is a color difference
Hope this helped a bit?

I simply made a strip that I found right in size, well I made it big enough for me to adjust on me and the once I was happy with it width and length wise i sewed it along with the trimming
I have only a test picture up so you can see the shirt a bit
I'm glad I kinda helped ^o^
