Thanks to all for your suggestions... I am most likely looking at
using the pouch idea. Perhaps punching a small hole in the back of
the pouch for the tubing and a couple of couched grommets along the
beltline of dress/bodice would provide an entry point through the
clothing for the tubing. Since she has just received the pump and has
not yet hat it "installed" we may have to see how everything hooks up
once she begins using it to better decide how to do this. Thank you
all again for your suggestions.
