Does anyone know how I would go about making this dress? My prom is not for a long time, but i'm sure it will take lots of time to make.

Any one know of a pattern that looks simmilar? Or how hard it would be to make? Thanks!

I'm pretty enough for both of us.

These are similar for the sleaves and basic pattern to start with:
Simplicity 4940. 4956, 4777
Butterick 3552
Check the pattern books under both wedding and costume.  That style is pretty popular right now.  You may end up combine several patterns.

You'll need to fit it pretty well and pick out fabric to look like that.  It looks like you could do the dress with the sleaves and green part as one piece and make a black corset to go over top for the lacing part.  As a plus you can wear the corset at other times too.  You may have trouble finding a pattern for the scalloped bottom edge.  But it does look like that green section follows under the breast line so if you can find a pattern with a breasts piece and a stomach piece for the bodice, it may be really easily to add in that splash of color (sort of like 4956).  If that green part went to the floor, you could use 4777.  Hope it helps a bit.

Thanks! this one is even better than the dress i was looking at before! I don't think there is much spider web fabric around in January, though. But I have some skull and cross bones fabric of the same texture I may be able to use!

You know what, in some stores the fall and Christmas stuff is still out, on clearance. If it's your thing, you may be able to find spider fabric yet!
