It's hard looking for a clear shot of the pattern on her side, I'm not sure if I'm in the right thread for this or not. For the pattern would hand painting the butteries and flowers on be good, I also wasn't sure about kind of fabric to use for the dress.

For my Sewing machine I have an this, a Singer Easy Stitcher.

For that, I would probably make stencils (one of each motif) and paint. I would probably hand-paint some of the details (like the swirly things), but I think stencils would give you a cleaner and more uniform look.

The dress looks like some kind of satin to me, I'd look around, get samples, and see how they photograph (you don't want the cheap poly-satin with the icky shine).

Thank You, I was thinking along those lines, something that is comfortable to wear for a few hours and nice looking.

Where would I be able to find stencils?

You would have to draw up the designs by hand, transfer them to a stencil sheet, and cut out the design. You can find the stencil sheets at most craft and fabric stores.

When I did the designs on my dress I used individual stencils for each part of the designs...so the butterflies had 2-3 stencils, the flowers had 1 or 2.

Also, when looking at fabric, take a camera with you if possible (one with flash) so you can photograph the fabric at the store.

Ah Thank You, I'm new to making my own cosplay so I"m not sure about what tools to use. When I look for the fabric I'll also look for the stencil sheets.
