This is a similar in concept, meaning three-dimensional of look, to the snow queen. It's not the same, but it's pretty cool anyway. It is in Portuguese, but I thought it was neat enough for you to see. If you know how to crochet the visuals should be enough for you to understand how to do this.
I might have these in the wrong order; each one is roughly 10 mins., some are much shorter. She talks a lot; wish I understood her better because I am sure with that much talking I must be missing something. There are 10 videos. I have figured out she is explaining how to make the dress starting at the bottom hem up. I am not interested in making this dress, just the techniques employed.
There are some patterns on Ravelry that incorporate this technique if you like it. I have two of them, just have not looked at them yet. I wanted to try and understand what the stitches did before I read the patterns so in case they don't make sense to me.
part 1 explaining first row
part 2 explaining second row
part 3 explaining 1st round of decreases
part 4: cutting and attaching thread to side to make front section of dress while making the back section open
part 5: filling decreases on back and showing back opening
part 6 continuing decreases
part 7 (haven't a clue what she was showing here) I think she is saying to go straight up sides till you get to under arm.
part 8 after having traveled straight up the side with out decreasing. Also showing how to secure stitches to go under arm
part 9 decreasing around the bust edges, sloping in
part 10 just showing lacing of the dress and the cord to make the lacing
