Burgundy Autumn Collection - Top 5 (plans)

For my fifth top I wanted to use a rich burgundy fabric from the stash. I thought it would be too plain in the patterns I used for the earlier tops and I have plenty of the fabric, so hunted through the pattern stash looking for something with a bit more interest.
Threadcount 1502 came with a sewing magazine (I think 'Love Sewing') but also looks a lot like McCall's 7249. I'm planning on making the long sleeved top. I've compared the measurements to New look 6735 and have sized up overall and shortened the sleeves slightly. I can always take it in a bit if it comes out too large.
I'll share when complete. I hope it works well and doesn't waste the fabric!

Note to self, some useful pointers on the McCall's 7249 here

Finally, I have used my head and gone directly to your blog. I usually use Bloglovin, but I find I cannot comment on your blog via Bloglovin. I do read and enjoy your posts, and love seeing your capsule wardrobes coming together.
