Piecing the white stole

I was able to spend a good amount of time at the sewing machine today, and pieced the two fronts of the white stole. I've opted for the more vertical design, inserting lace edgings into occasional seams.

My stategy is to piece the two halves of the stole as a single unit up to the chest area. I then cut the resulting fabric into two and add enough foundation fabric for the shoulders and back.

The second image shows the two halves, completely pieced, but not trimmed.
My next step is to determine any further embellishment, e.g. couched gold thread or machine embroidery. That's a decision for tomorrow!

Below is a detail view of the piecing with lace inserts.
