I have lots of ideas, probably too many and I can't decide. How would you embellish this costume? Teacher wants all white, no color. Clear or ab stones fine. Appliqué fine too as long as they are white.

Not sure if you wanted to keep it purely white or not, but I love colored appliques with accompanying color rhinestones on white costumes.

Thank you. I think it needs something though, it's for title.

What song? I feel like that can help guide the costume embellishments or ideas sometimes. That being said my daughter had an all white lyrical costume similar (long mesh sleeves and top/back with sweetheart bodice lace over the white and double chiffon skirt- short)... we made 3 rows of rhinestones at the neck, and a row along the bottom of the sleeves and also where the mesh met the lace... nothing on the mesh/see through type part and tons scattered all over the bodice and skirt.

I like bling where bling is due and sometimes i like no bling but i do feel like when its all white you need the rhinestones/embellishments a little more.

I would probably stone the heavier lace near the neck and back opening (maybe sleeves but the depends on how her arms fit). I would definitely line the sweetheart neckline with stones and maybe then stone some of the bodice starting tighter at the top and loosening a bit but concentrating over the bust. I would scatter some stones on the skirt.

My biggest design question is where the skirt attached. Does this V waistline flatter your dd? Would a sash look nice? Or an appliqué "belt"? This is the only part of the dress I'm unsure about. Otherwise add some bling and you are good to go. It's very pretty.
