i'd call it a denim corset-like vest thing a ma bob.   Smiley  it really shouldn't be too hard to make if you use stretchy denim.  i'm sure there are plenty of early 90's patterns for this exact thing, but i think using the bodice of a fitted sundress pattern would work.  just allow extra on the front pieces for the buttons, and cut it short.

you could cheak out the "make your own corest" thread on this board.  but you probly wont need boning cause denium is so stiff, and it would have straps. maby a princess seamed fitted vest pattern would work?

do a web search using the terms "renaissance bodice".  that is the exact shape of the garment you sketched and there are literally dozens of sites that explain exactly how to pattern them and sew them.
