Sorry... My internet crashed.  For a while.

Anyway, I meant, how you wanted the dress to look, like the shape....  Unless you really don't know and plan to make it from scratch.  Which I am now assuming.


Ok, from my crazy imagination and those two pictures and your brief discription...
When someone says "punk," I think red and black first, color wise.  Than plaid.  Then other stuff... Soooooo...
And idea would be to cheat, and make that two pieces... or three.  I would make a skirt that is super puffy, the e-bay picture, than have a top, like a tank top, to match the color, than a blazer similiar to the vintage vixen page on top of that.  (I know that isn't a blazer, but I think that a blazer would be better than just a top, personally)  Make sense? 

The skirt would be easy to make... and probably really cheap, especially if you horde JoAnn's coupons like I do.  The page itself says that the skirt is made of a crinoline, an acetate base fabric, and chiffon.  So basically, it's a really two layered full simple gathered skirt with netting under it.  Make a really full net skirt the length desired, than find a shiny-ish fabric and some chiffon-ish stuff, and make a gethered skirt to wear on top of the net skirt.  Simple!

The blazer would be a bit harder, especially if you aren't that skilled of a sewer.  I don't know what your level is...  Anyway, even if you are adept at sewing, I'd say to go to the thrift store and find a nice blazer that fits, relatively, and alter it.  Chop the sleeves, change the hem, and even maybe take it in on the sides to get a tighter fit.

So, there is the dress.  To make it punk...  Well, going by my discription of stereotypical punk, I'd use red and black.  Or green and black.  Or blue and black.  You get the idea.  A really really bright color with black.  So for example, the skirt.  The shiny fabric base fabric could be black, and the chiffon could be red.  The fold would create an interesting effect.  Or visa versa, the shiny base fabric could be red, with black chiffon on top.  The blazer, when I first thought of it, I though would be cool to be black velvet.  Granted, if you go the thrift store route, you take what you can get.  So, I'd try to find a plain black one.  Maybe use an accent fabric for the folded areas, like the labels or cuffs.  Maybe find some plaid fabric!

So, you get the idea.  As for the other stuff...  Hair might look cool with put into several tiny pony tails all over your head...  A really obnoxious pentant of some sort...   And maybe find some black opera length gloves?  Chop the fingertips off, add slashes, and wear fishnets under them, perhaps. 

Hmm...  Ok, My brain definately died out.  Hope I helped a bit!

Write lyrics all over it in crazy coloured sharpies, but don't let people sign it. They write lame shit like 'tough break' or 'haha, you broke your arm'. Your dress and shoes sound gorgeous, I heart Isaac Mizrahi. I would wear that dress with some insane tangle of beads, plastic or resin bangles and red stained lips.
