Border line - Butterick 5328

As I'm still working on my SWAP, I found a piece of black woven fabric with a heavy embroidered border. I bought this from Pitt Trading at least three years ago. I thought it would be good on a dress but I've used this on the bottom hem of this cross over top.
I'm using Butterick 5328 and I've already made this up twice before.

This week I was in the mood to alter and cut out a few pieces to sew on the weekend and this was one of them. A pattern piece was missing so I traced this from a top I made up last year (lucky).
I've added a full bust adjustment and I've made the sleeve gathered. I'm not sure how long/short the sleeve will be as yet. It will depend on where it ends, in relation to my bust. I always avoid sleeve hems that are level with my bust. I don't need the attention here.

Hi Alison.
That could work. I'll think about it ie collection entry maybe.
