More Blackwork

While I have decided not to put any more blackwork around the neck of my chemise, I caved and did the same trim around the cuffs. I did one cuff last night while watching a Billy Joel special. (After hand stitching the facing down). I should be able to finish the other cuff tonight.

I am keen to get another chemise underway. This one will be a high necked version. My only issue is the collar and cuffs. I would like to do something that is reversable but that would only work using a single layer of fabric, which I don't think would be stiff enough. One option would be to do the design on two sections and then join these together. What do you think?
