I'm trying to make this outfit Alice wears in Alice: Madness Returns. It all seems pretty easy to make, I'm just having problems finding a good pattern for the shirt she wears under her dress. It's basically just a plain white blouse with a high neck and short, poofy sleeves. :3 Any ideas?

Here's a reference picture:

Thanks in advance! Cheesy

Here's a free pattern:  http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/jj

You can just leave off the ruffles on the front and probably extend the neckband a little higher.

Well get a blouse with a low neck with puffy sleeves then just get a white scarf and wrap around your neck. NOT to tight.. Smiley

Hmm...it actually looks to me like it's a low cut, puffy sleeve blouse with a separate collar. In which case there are plenty of patterns that would work for the blouse, depending on much detail you want it to have. But even if you do a high collar blouse, I would still say the easiest approach is to still just do a collar separately.

Good luck.

the reference photo isnt really clear, i cant tell if the sleeves are pleated or gathered at the sleeveband, as well as the armscye. from what you said i know that it is a high-necked blouse under a jumper/dress, but i can see how that would be confusing. if youre going to do it in plain cotton:
you'd have to extend the neck a bit, maybe add lace to do that.
