Hello all. I recently purchased a couple tops online, and they fit like they were absolutely MADE for my body shape. They were a bit pricey, so I want to know if any of y'all know of a pattern that exists that would be as close to this top as possible. I like the empire waist and tie back (The ties are only about 3/8" wide) and the tuxedo pleats.

It does not have to have the roll tab sleeves. Long sleeve would be nice, but I am most concerned about getting that silhouette. Thank you!

A couple patterns come to mind (none have the ties, but that seems like it would be easy to add):

Butterick 5997

Vogue 8857

Vogue 1165

OOOO! Major bonus points for that last Betzina one! I have not made one of her patterns yet, but I have one (a corset-style top) and love that she offers such a wide range of sizes! Thank you!

McCalls 6899 view D is very close...a small tweak to add elastic.

B5644 might be worth a look for the waist. Crossover rather than pleats, no sleeves.

I am just making http://sewing.patternreview.com/Patterns/20208
Burda 7748, which with the FBA I have done looks quite like the shirt you posted.

I have seen a nice plus size empire tunic on Burdastyle too - if I can find it, I'll post it here...
