As to sewing trim, can you explain to us how it is you do all of your
emboiderie on separate material and then attach it to the dress.  I have
watched you working on it and have heard the basics of how it is attached,
but not well enough to try it myself.  Not sure if I am brave enough to try
this, but hope to eventually get there.  For those who haven't seen her
dresses, they are simple and elegant tunics, and the needlework is incredible.
