@FutureWife517:  I would search for beaded appliques then. There are a ton of them on etsy and I think it would be less expensive to purchase a beaded applique and have it added to your dress than to have a belt changed into an applique and added to your dress.

I think if you get an applique that is larger it will function the same way the flower did (to provide a reason for the skirt to be gathered to that side) without being a big flower. I’m not really a fan of the flower. I think the trick is to get a beaded applique that is fairly large, about as large as the center diamond portion of the belt you tried on.

@FutureWife517:  Do you have a picture of you in your dress without the flower and without the belt? I’m having trouble picturing the blank canvas.

ETA: I really like the beading on the inspiration dress but I’m not sure you can do that much beading with the gathered ruffles. Thats why I was posting appliques that are (hopefully) similar in size to the flower but don’t neccessarily extend as far as the belt. I think what throw me off with the belt is that it is more horizontal than vertical, which makes you look wider vs taller. I think thats why most appliques are generally at a 45 degree angle (makes you look slimmer and taller) or more vertical (makes you look taller).
