Elsa's Coronation Dress

I'm going to cosplay Elsa's coronation dress and was wondering what you guys would recommend on how to do the design on the front, as I've never done anything like that before. Also, do you guys think that the black longsleeve shirt is part of the dress? I think it is (and it would help keep the otherwise strapless dress up) and I think it'd look nicer if it was all one piece.

Elsa's coronation dress is in 2 parts, a black undershirt and a dress :3
For the patterns I'd embroider them using a satin stitch method for her pretty patterns :3
Heres a high res pic of the dress; the black clearly goes under the blue bit
I suppose you could do a fake-out black shirt but it would still be stitched to the underside of the bodice :3

It definitely is two parts, you can see the shadow of seam allowances under both edges of the bronzey/gold facing around the top of the dress bodice. The good thing is that the quirks of 3D animation make the layers act as one. So you can indeed get away with making them in two parts but joining them together. I'd recommend at the lower edge of the gold/bronze edging of the bodice. It won't be as obvious as at the top edge You can easily then also cut away the excess under the body to reduce bulk or extra layers of added warmth.
