Are you looking for a tutorial on adding pickups to a skirt? This blog might help.

And here's a good picture of pickups on a little girl's dress:



From what I can tell, it looks like you basically arrange the pickups by hand until you're happy with the look, and then invisibly tack them in place from the underside. The beads or jewels are an optional--but fun!--embellishment to the basic technique.
