I haven't had any time to sew because of school/competitions, but I got to actually take out my dress last night and look at it for the first time in two weeks. I decided though that it is really boring and needs something to add interest to it. So here's the new plan:
Left is back, right is front. The white x's are representative of rhinestones and the transparent green is stretch net.
This means I'm going to have to rip out a lot of seams in the next few days, but I think I will be much happier with the results.
