Adding a dimmer wiring question

Hey everyone. I'm trying to add a dimmer to my bathroom light. Currently, there is a single gang double switch, one for the light and one for the exhaust fan. I made it into a double gang box so I can install two full sized switches to allow for a dimmer. Now I just need to wire it up but it's not a direct swap like I thought it would be(for an amateur like me anyway).

If you look at the attachment you'll see how it is currently wired and how I think it should be wired. Please let me know what I need to change, if anything. I'm not sure if it is correct or not but I'm not going to try anything until I know it's right.

Thanks for any help with this.

Your wiring looks correct.
