Yes, but I _want_ to make a forepart for this dress.  I know that I don't 
need to, and that I will probably wear it closed at first, but eventually I 
want to have a forepart.  I am trying to match the colors as much as 
possible, I'm just getting tired of English roses.

I don't think that blackwork would be appropriate, and so intend to do some 
sort of couching, but not sure about a design, and what would go/not go 
with that shirt.
