Anyone have a free pattern to share that is similar...? Or an idea of how to make it?

i do my own patterns (learnt it in my country of birth) so i cant help you with a similar pattern. in this case it would take me quite a bit of time to do the math. i'd start in the middle - the chest bone and then add equal gathers to both sides and then cut the cloth where you would like your sleeves and neck to go. the front looks shorter than the back. i have to say its a cute shirt. and the key is the type of material you use. its a flowy shirt. 


to me it looks like a whole bunch of gathers. pretty simple actually. u bring the gathers up to make the shape of the top.

Very cute!

I don't know, it reminds me of the pillowcase style dresses for toddlers.  Maybe someone who knows more could tell you if it would work, but I see using a different type of fabic (rather than a pillowcase) and sewing it up like a pillowcase dress and then go from there.

Yes, it reminded me of the pillowcase dresses and tank tops. Here's one link to a tutorial but there are lots out there if you google. That top is very cute. Good luck with it.
