 ;DI looked at those dresses and thought bing "Alexander McQueen"!
Good luck to you. I would presume that is a ruffle pattern (Think excessive 90's ruffles) then the "ruffle area" is ripped along with a

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

Ok I think I have an answer for you. It's dense layers of chiffon sewn one on top of another in a wavey fashion. The bodice of it is a fleshtone body suit which are easy to find from dancewear stores(like what ballerinas wear). The top is layered as well with more chiffon. The shredded part is harder. Some fabrics curl like that when you stretch them so I would say that's what was done. As for patterns...I would suggest a fitted skirt pattern that flairs at the bottom to get the right shape http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5429.htm??tab=skirts_pants&page=1 (this but longer)and just attach that to a body suit( http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/SSF828.htm??tab=stretch_sew&page=1 or http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/GPF813.htm??tab=green_pepper&page=1 ). You could also alter it to work with this pattern http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2237.htm??tab=evening_bridal_includes_designer&page=6

here are some other patterns if you are willing to tweek the look of the insiration a little

I actually finished the dress a couple months ago and am waiting for my girl and my's schedules to line up so that we can do a photo shoot. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough of the fabric that she selected to ruffle the whole skirt; but we ended up with something pretty interesting and are in the process of finding more fabric to finish the whole thing. For the tendrils, I ended up cutting out hundreds of circles from the fabric and then cutting it in a spiral so that it would stay curled. I will definitely post pics when I get them.

I think it is just hundreds of tiny layers of fabric.. start at the bottom and work up! Hope his thing isn't too soon as i can imagine to get the effect you'll have to use alot of time.

I've seen the spiral effect somewhere before - could you get it by cutting strips on the bias?

Gorgeous dress!
