I'm about to make a long evening dress of heavily embellished, almost sheer, fabric over an underskirt and would be grateful for any particular pitfalls I should look out for. Also, what number machine needle would you recommend please.

Sometimes its recommended to remove any heavy threadwork,beading ,sequins that fall within the seam allowance because it would distort. Depending on the backing fabric,the concern is making holes with the needle in the fabric. A ball point may work,or an extra thin micro tex. If the fabric is more like a knit ,try a needle specific for knits Your stitch length and tension deserve lots of tweeking to get a smooth seam with no puckers. Good luck-sounds like a wonderful project.

Thank you Carry - that's very useful information. I've never stitched such a heavily beaded/embroidered type of fabric before so any help is appreciated.
