Since we last visited this bodice, it needed to be lifted up at the shoulders because an unsightly horizontal wrinkle appeared over my bust when I wore it. ( see 2nd photo for unsightly wrinkle) Done!

Then it desperately needed some trim. I poked through my Jomar trim finds and picked a matte sequin trim braid to be placed over black net lace ruffles. I also decided to fill in the open sleeve with a double ruffle of the net lace.

Just need to tack down the sleeve ruffles! Should I add the sequin trim around the hem of the sleeve, too?

That's so pretty! I think the sequin trim might look better just featured at the neckline?

I love the new trim! I think you don't need any more than that. Leaving it as is, is already perfect!

I tend to enjoy going overboard with the trimmings, so I'd likely at least hold it up and see how it would look, the only thing I'd be concerned about is if it's done in such a way that it might be scratchy against your arm.

It's a very cute bodice!

THIS is my favorite part of making a costume.
