 Do you know how to sow very well? If so, just take a pattern like this one:

 
 And just lengthen the bottom hem of the one to the right. Then just gather the bottom a little bit, all around until it looks right. Then buy red fabric and make an underskirt sort of thing. I forgot what the top looks like, so if you posted it I could help more  Smiley

 Ok, so you could just use the same pattern for the top, but handstitch some tulle into it, so it sticks out. Tulle is super cheap and pretty easy to gather that way.
 As far as the skirt, just make it longer than required in the pattern, and then fold and gather it- kind of like a bubble skirt. Then sew a skirt or even just a small piece of maroon fabric to the inside, and then make a sash sort of thing.
 Now that I look at it, this dress looks like a drop waisted dress, so maybe this pattern would work better:

 Simplicity 4399


 Again, you would just lengthen the skirt and omit all of the lacey stuff. Another plus with this dress is that it will show you how to make the sash. If you need any help, PM me and I will do the best I can  Smiley
 By the way, I was going to make that dress over the summer but I never got around to it. Maybe I will still attempt it. Good luck on your project!

Oh yes..I think  raining_dreams got it right..the dress is drop waisted, bubble skirt and lined with a macthing color to the waist band...interesting dress..My only question is if the front is shorter than the back..hum

The skirt of the dress is lined.  The shape of the underskirt closely follows the shape of the dress but the lining is a-line and more fitted.  It is usually about 3 inches shorter than the skirt. Often the gathered portion of the skirt is interlined or interfaced with net to give it more punch and make it stand out a little more.  Net does this better than illusion or tullle.  The  skirt is then gathered at the bottom and attached to the lining after the side seams of the lining and skirt are sewn and the whole thing is attached to the bodice with one seam. 

For the top you'll be much happier if you gather your  tuille or illusion (I wouldn't use net because it is scratchy) and sandwich i between a lining and your garment top.  You'll probably want to use tuille because illusion is stretchy and limp.
