Well. For goodness sake. I needed a blouse to wear with suits. Button down  
the front. No collar.  Also, no stuff such as a neckline that would reveal  
my bellybutton, 5-point swaggy hem or wild and crazy sleeves.  Finally found  
two - one an out-of-print KwikSew and a Vogue over at ebay. This will be the  
first time I've sewed a garment for myself in decades but brings me back to  
why I learned to sew in the lst place. If you want to dress conservatively,  
it is good that you can sew. There was Nothing available at any price  
anywhere.  gasp.  Polly

Search term "mormon (or LDS) clothing"

;-D

Also, "modest women's clothing"

There are probably other terms but those sufficed to provide  
examples.

Some very nice designs there and not a belly button in sight.

Uh, I'm sorry to contradict here: Look at this one  
http://www.sistermissionaryclothes.com/tops/315-boyfriend-halftee.html ,  
please,  and tell me what, in all the world, that dark object in the middle  
is. (I really wonder how that made it into the collection...) ;-)

I stand corrected Ursula, Sorry.
  I love the description of that top " boyfriend sleeve" Is that to stop  
him putting his hand on your upper arm perhaps? so useful when you have  
your belly button exposed. Only kidding.

there isn't.   I see patterns sometimes now in  secondhand/antique  
stores, sometimes at surprising  prices.
