I'm thinking this is the pattern I am going to use (with modification though).
I sketched out the embroidery for the front and hem of the dress.
Here is the first part of the bodice!
Here is the bodice before it being fitted.
This is the embroidery sample (I know, I know, not the right color, I just wanted to make sure I got it right).
So The pattern I chose for the skirt is a modified version of the Simplicity 9966. I use the two side panels and the back piece in this purple fabric (I will be using a different fabric for the front panel).
