Hey! I tried to respond to the comment you left on my costume photo, but I have no idea if it worked (it's being buggy right now apparently...). Anyway, I just looked for a sleeveless top with a rounded or Mandarin collar. And if you find a pattern but it's not sleeveless, that's not too hard to make into sleeveless. I can't say what pattern I used, because I'm not even sure, since it was about 10 years ago that I made mine XD
If you browse the pattern catalogs in the fabric store or online, you should be able to find a pattern that would work. I usually start with www.simplicity.com or www.mccallpattern.com when looking

Probably not. Sometimes you just have to put a seam line where there isn't one in the art

Gosh, this dress was a labor of love for me, I hope yours comes out beautifully!
I didn't use any patterns for my dress, but what you're aiming for as far as the top part really is just a sleeveless shirt with the addition of the squared off collar, so that's basically how I did mine (made a sleeveless shirt with a zipper on the side and then sewed on the collar, hah!).
I hope you use a circle skirt for the bottom of the dress! Zelda's dress is depicted as having a LOT of folds and fabric in it, I think a circle skirt is one of the best ways to go about this, and they are easy to make. I used a circle skirt and the way my skirt lays is one of the most common complements I get on the costume!
The over bodice is easy enough, just be sure to keep it symmetrical and not to make it too long.
Good luck!
