Blueprint: Constellation Skirt

The following are some of the design sketches for a proposed constellation skirt. The constellation skirt comprises three layers:
1. outer skirt (dark matte silk, velcro)
2. electronic underskirt (stiff cotton muslin, conductive thread, sewable LEDs, velcro, arduino)
3. lining (acetate, sewn to outer skirt)

The overskirt is attached permanently to the lining, but the electrical layer is removable anchored to the outer skirt with velcro, for ease of cleaning if necessary.

None of the electronic/conductive components are meant to be attached to the middle layer, the electronic layer. I thought something like this disk could serve as a good star element as a button.
