Fiona Belli Blouse Help

Hello!
I've been wanting to do this cosplay for a long time, though I'm not sure how to tackle such a detailed shirt. I know how to make the lace, but not quite how to make the shape of the shirt itself.
Any suggestions on how to make it or a pattern that would work for the shirt?

How would you feel about drafting the pattern yourself ? The artwork is fairly realistic in that there are seams where they need to be seams - that will be functional and work well. Even the sleeves are rendered fairly realistically and would probably just need some kind of fashion tape or glue to stay up if they proved difficult.

If you're not sure about making it yourself, you could look for a fitted pattern with princess seams and go from there.

I'd just ignore all the details and look for a top with princess seams that will fit closely. The sleeves are basically just rectangles so those will be easy to add. I'm not 100% sure what's going on with the back of the shirt, but chances are you'll have to modify the pattern for that no matter which one you find.

The back is what is throwing me, too. I've done something similar before by cutting the two back panels on a princess seam shirt shorter,

This may work as a starting pattern, with the skirt removed, the neckline made square, and sleeves added

The top of this one may work, changing the collar to square and add the cuffed peasant sleeve
