Thumbs up marceline dress help?

I want to make marcelines dress and it looks so incredibly easy, but im still stumped on how to make it fit correctly without falling down or whatnot.

heres her dress: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lynd9tWfk61qb9kdq.jpg and http://images5.fanpop.com/image/quiz...55_181_278.jpg

ive looked for patterns but i cant find anything similar and i was wondering if i do make the dress, should i line it to stiffen it up for the jagged pieces up top so they wont flop down?
thanks for the guidance!

I would look through the pattern companies web sites for a strapless bubble skirt dress. it'll be there somewhere.

Once you have the pattern, copy the bodice pattern pieces onto some other paper. now you can draw that jagged top without accidentally exposing yourself. Put away the original pattern pieces and use your copied amended ones when cutting your dress out.

when sewing, obviously you'll be doing the top edge differently, possibly putting boning in the jagged bits so they stay up. But essentially, it'll be the same process as instructed, just different shapes resulting. Good luck!
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

This pattern allows you to choose a strapless top, and the skirt closest to what you want.

if you dont want to go strapless, you could always do a netted shoulder piece in marcelines skin color to match your body paint or body suit. This would also give you something to sew the "spikey raggy top" to so the points stayed in place. (You see this done a lot with ballet and ice skating dresses)

Here's an idea I have for the spike top thing;

(pardon the sloppy drawing)

the idea is to have a "sheer" top to attach the spikes to. That way you have both security that it won't fall off and that the spikes will stay up
