Bodice of the basic Mourning Dress

Today I finished the skirt hem.  Hems are great "watching TV" projects.  I have the button and button hole to finish yet.  And when I finish the bodice I will go back and embellish the skirt.

So,I have been thinking about the bodice of this dress.  It has a "vest" look to it. It was a common style back in the day.  The vest itself is sewn in so you can't change it easily.

This is an example I found of this style.

I  have these 2 laces so maybe I will use one of them for the vest.

In the mean time, I am still mulling over what frufru I am going to add to the skirt.  I have to find that pleating thingy.  Hopefully it is where I think it is!
