Is there a modern pattern that is available that would give this kind of shape blouse?
http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_1554
It looks quite similar to the style of top that's popular now.
I was wondering if its as simple as it looks? Just essentially and inverted triangle shape?

Do you mind buttons in the back? Colette's Sencha blouse has a similar shape, it's on my to do list...

I would say it is a fairly simple shape with drafted on cap sleeves. I would also guess that as it is tucked 1940s top that shaping at the waist is a couple of tucks and not a dart to give a blousey effect. It was the tops worn over the skirt that seem to have darts.

SecondHandRouge has beat me to suggest Sencha

I could also suggest Decades of Styles Girl Friday Blouse.
http://www.decadesofstyle.com/vintage-patterns-1940s/4005-1940s-girl-friday-blouse

The page has the pattern pieces so you can see the shape. One important thing to note about the pattern is it is a tucked style at the waist and not darted. The pattern drawing for Decades of style has been changed/photoshopped from the original 1940s envelope to have the top over the skirt where as my Butterick's 1940s issue of this pattern shows the top tucked in. Which makes more sense with the comments I made about untucked versus tucked tops in the 1940s of this style

I used a 70's pattern to make a blouse as it was very close to the pattern I was looking for....review here.

That pattern really reminds me of something I've seen recently -- no idea where. Simplicity Sew Simple (maybe this, although it has no buttons)? Or maybe something in Burda magazine?

I'd say to use a regular pattern with a bust dart, rotate the dart to the shoulder (hence the gathers) and make a cap sleeve by extending the shoulder about 4" on the top and 1" below the armscye.
