Ready to be embroidered

The applique is fixed onto the panels and I am ready to start the embroidery on this dress. The blue pleats will have a ruffled edge on the top sides. This morning I have ruffled all the yellow organza needed for this (who said dressmakers had the day off on sunday? :-) The hemline will be shaped, which means the pleats will not be able to move around. You cannot really see the blue flowers in the picture as it is taken with poor lighting, but they are really shiny turquoise. Once the embroidery has started they will pop out of the background due to the contrasting color.
