Hi hi.... I'm tryin' to make this characters dress but i'm not sure how to go about making it and it's my first time to try and make a full dress. So what i wanted to know is how do you think i should go about making this dress and what fabric i could use as in the game her dress is very flowy but not see-through. Can u please help me out?

I'd start with a pattern like this one: http://www.simplicity.com/p-2314-junior-dresses.aspx and just add rows of ruffles all the way down the dress.  To make the ruffles, start with a long strip that's about 3.5-4" long and 1.5x the width of the part of the dress you're going to sew it on to.  All the ones on the torso could probably be the same length, but you'd want them longer as you get down into the skirt, as it flares.  Finish one long edge of each strip, and run a basting stitch through the other long end.  Gather the basting threads until the strip is the same width as the dress where you're attaching it.  Then just sew it on.  (put the wrong side of the ruffle up, with the bottom flipped up toward the neck, stitch, then flip it down into place).  Hope that helps!
