I don't usually wear a lot of button down tops, but for about the next year (due to breastfeeding) I will be wearing a lot of them. To accomodate I decided to purchase the following two blouse patterns from McCalls and I am pretty excited about the possibilities.

I love the idea of this loose fitting, but still feminine buttonup. It also comes in multiple cup sizes (another big plus for the breastfeeding mom). I am thinking of a nice silky version like the one on the cover, maybe a chambray to wear with black leggings, and a black and white gingham one too.

I really like the cut of this top. It has low, batwing sleeves and a cute collar. I am surprised that there are no versions to be found of this already sewn up on the web. I think it's a really on trend pattern and I can't wait to give it a try.
