Don't't have any pattern suggestions other than to look at silhouette pattern. Peggy Sagers has some tunics that might could be modified. She follows ready to wear closely. I loved Michelle's inaugural coat and dress. Very chic!

I can't get a clear view of how the shoulder area is and all, but it looks like a modified shirtwaist - a dress pattern could be cut down to tunic length!

A few links that might work to "frankenpattern" this!

V8847

And this one if you made the sleeve differently and raised the waist a bit?

V8785

Just a start...I wish there were more pictures of that top!Good luck!

Here's some better photo showing the tucks.





I have to agree. Great shirt! Why can't the Big 4 draft original, unique patterns like this?

If only I had a pattern. I won't do so well trying to modify a different top.
