Spring blouses

We are getting our winter weather now that we have started a new season!  Snow is sparkling outside and we are thankful for the moisture.  It is much needed.  Our spring  wardrobe will have to wait longer in storage until we see that the temperatures will be more conducive to lighter wear.

In the meantime, it is time to plan for some blouse additons for existing skirts.  Color choices will be determined by the skirts and how many combinations will work together.

These are  simple blouses that can be worn through three seasons.  Butterick 5890 (top) can be made into a variety of weights of fabrics.  McCall's 6750 (bottom) is also versatile and offers sleeveless (which is immodest and I would use another sleeve pattern that goes above the elbow similar to the Butterick above) and two longer lengths.

I am looking forward to getting these patterns as they seem simple to construct and yet very stylish and modest with the longer sleeves (elbow, mid forearm, and wrist length).
