For certain adding the boning on the inside lining, and adding small beads to the ends of the silk ribbon to keep from fraying. Need to add some trim around the waist line and the bottom seam of the peplum to cover up the lines from the pockets. It's all in how I want to decorate it. So many wonderful options yet, I will definitely make a decision because I'm consider wearing this over the
weekend. I plan on matching this up with a black worked coif, a velvet riding hat with feathers, and matching it up with appropriate dark color jewelry. Which will show up nice against the velvet.
Will post pictures when the ensemble is complete.
Well back to it,
