I need to wear something on the first day of school.

I am very sensitive to fabrics, and I need to basically buy a whole new wardrobe. Please help!
I tend to be quite sensitive to the way fabric feels. If it's scratchy or feels too synthetic, I don't like wearing it. I'm ok with one polyester dress from Old Navy, but it was really soft and didn't bother me as much as a blouse made of polyester usually would. Blouses from Banana Republic, for example, especially the clingy ones, gross me out.
I am looking for specific blouse recommendations, as well as stores to visit, for a business casual environment. I have a pretty classic, minimalist look, with fitted shirts and pencil skirts. I have plenty of pencil skirts, but all of my shirts are either cheap cotton that shrunk or some synthetic material that I can't bear to wear anymore. I tend not to wear button downs because they gap, but I would maybe be willing to look at some if they don't gap or get wrinkled.
Additional difficulty: I am on a teacher's salary, so I have a very tight budget to buy work-appropriate clothes for the new school year.
