The dress you will need to look up tutorials on these specific pieces: Princess seam, Puff Sleeve, Circle Skirt. Those are the 3 pieces of the dress. The top is where you'd use the princess seams, they make it so that it fits more tight in the waist. Along with the puff sleeve, I made a tube the right size for my arm to fit in and sewed that to the cuff of the puff sleeve. I used white trim that was not matching the original design though so you can do that stuff however you want.
To double up on this and make it super easy-
Buy a white blouse to wear underneath the dress.
Just sew a black dress with a rather long circle skirt, I think? You could also try gathering the waist of the skirt and sewing the blue band to it, then just hemming the bottom and wearing a petticoat underneath of it.
For the top, yes, princess seams would be the way to do it.
Puff sleeves you can use the way I made my Mew Ichigo arm sleeves. Just cut a long rectangle up, using a running stitch, sew both sides and pull, gathering it, then sew it in a tube like thing. Works really well. Then just sew that to the sleeve of the top piece of the dress. For the part below the puff sleeves, just make a tube like JasonTerror said~ Bottom of the sleeves is obvious.
Super easy dress if you have a sewing machine and someone who knows how to sew :3 Hope I could be of some help.
