Need help with Miss Fortune's dress design!

Hey guys! I'm working on my first ever costume and it's Miss Fortune from League of Legends as her Secret Agent skin. I have the dress finished but I'm not sure howto go about adding the blue lines on it or if I should even bother? Here's a ref of the original design.

That is also pretty much the only ref picture that there is. Which is kind of annoying. xD
The fabric of the dress is quite stretchy too, which would affect any paint on it o-o
So yes, any help is very much appreciated

From the picture, I'd say the blue elements are an integral and important feature. Yes, you need them. Look in the sewing forum for threads on fabric painting, the right paints will look awesome.

The usual advice on painting stretchy fabric is to put on the garment, then have a friend help you paint it. Maybe wrap yourself in plastic wrap first so the paint doesn't bleed through the fabric onto your skin.
