As I want to make "outfits" this year (I make too many separates from fabrics I love and then nothing really goes together!) I will also make this McCalls blouse - I've had the pattern a couple of years and have run out of excuses not to make it. I'll be making the blue version. I particularly like the fact that this pattern has pieces for varying cup sizes.
And here are the fabrics I will be using. It sticks in my throat to say it, but they came from Hansons - the shop with bad customer service. The green is 100% wool soft tweed to be lined in pink and the batik print is 100% cotton, just going through the washing machine at the moment.

As ever with Burda I'll have to make a toile, but with McCalls I will tissue fit. If I have any concerns at that stage, that's when I may make a toile for a pattern I haven't used before.
