Alter a plain shirt pattern to make a cool cross-over effect
For my project I used the Grainline Studio's Scout Tee pattern but you could use any shirt pattern that has a one-piece back. I didn't make any changes to the sleeves or front pieces so you only have to make one new pattern piece. You can control how much back skin is showing by how high up your cross-over pieces reach and how far from the side seams the curve upward begins.

Cut the rest of your fabric pieces out.
First stitch the side seams of the front and back pieces together.
Then hem the whole bottom of the shirt. It needs to be hemmed before you attach the sleeves.
From there you can assemble the top normally: stitch the shoulders, attaching sleeves, finishing neckline and sleeve hems, etc.
