I would get a racerback tank in your size and take it apart.  Save the front and use the back as a template.  Trace the back onto paper to make your own pattern.  Any fabric store (even upholstory stores, check the curtain sections) would have the gauze to make that.  Then go to the embroidery section of craftster and ask for their help.  Oh, either take the binding off the tank top, or get new to finish the edges.

ikillbarbies had a great explanation, but I wanted to add that you'll probably want to give yourself a couple of inches of room for your body if the mesh doesn't stretch at all. nothing too major.

Then, as far as the pattern goes, just draw what you want to embroider onto the same back template, and use that to trace it onto the mesh, then pick up some embroidery thread and start stitchin.

You could probably cheat and paint it, but I'm not sure how great your results would be.
