The Wave Shield and Arduino will be stitched into a fabric sleeve and then attached to the dress with press studs. This way we can remove it for maintenance and washing if necessary.
It was easy to sew some of the contacts with conductive thread, but power and ground needed crimping beads soldered on so that we could sew those, too. The Arduino will sit just below the waist at the back of the dress.
