Has anyone found a 3/4 sleeve, slightly fitted linen blouse?

I'm looking for a linen blouse for work that's:
- slightly fitted / shaped (I'm a norky size 10 and can't do straight up and down without looking much bigger than I am)
- 3/4 sleeves (because its for work)
- plain colour (to go with dark brown or beige trousers)

Has anyone found such a thing? I usually find them at H&M or Uniqlo, but neither seems to have any this year.

Yes in Tesco , I've got an amazing white one ! Size down though..

This one ?

Or the Y neck one?

And would sizing down still accommodate norks, do you think (28GG)?

Hi yes that one , I'm a 10/12 and 32 g . It's fairly roomy so I would go for an 8 . It's great for the price and I love the way the sleeves stay up because of the design it looks way more expensive than it was .

Thanks! So handy to know it's on the large side, I hate it when I end up with masses of extra fabric on the back of a blouse, it looks ridiculous.

I think Tesco in general are on the large side to be honest . I buy a lot of clothes there and I'm always a 10 . I'm often a 12 elsewhere .
