Battle with Blouses

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a simple casual blouse, especially made of fabrics with no stretch.  I always find myself picking up the cute sheer blouses that are on sale, only to be disappointed by the fact that my arms would not fit into the sleeve.  Not every plus size female has this problem.  Some of you are blessed with a generous bosom and small arms.  I, on the other hand, was dealt a different hand.   I can wear a full dress size smaller if the garment has no sleeves.  Which means, going up in size to accommodate my arms can tend to mean the top becomes unflattering.

So the battle begins with McCalls 5145.....
