pressure sensor dresses: sewing the speakers

Here’s how we’re attaching the speakers to the dresses:

The speakers will be covered with crochet, but we wanted to make them detachable in case something breaks or needs to be resoldered, etc.  First we embroidered our circuit with conductive thread, stitching pads on the dress where the speakers will be connected.  We’ve soldered crimp beads to the speakers so that we can sew them (with conductive thread) to the embroidered pads on the dress.
