The skirt is cut asymmetrically, then picked up, if I'm reading it properly.  Think of it this way, ever seen some of the more interesting (read: complex) ways to bustle a train?  It's exactly like that, but on the side, not the back.  And the whole thing has a bubble hem.  I think where you're seeing a spiral is the part right under the bust, right?  If you look at your second picture, you can see that those pleats are separate from the skirt.  The skirt goes up under them.  You could almost think of it like a two piece outfit--with the pleated top and bodice, and a big, giant bubble skirt.  In fact, both tiers of the pick-up are sewn like bubbles, too.  They're just asymmetrical, and the bottom one doesn't go all the way around.

if i simply do a pick up style skirt for the bottom part, will it still look good? i have no idea how to make the skirt spiral down like that...

I agree Im pretty sure thats what they did .. they just worked it into a spiral variation ....
