Does anyone know how to make a dress with an adjustable hemline? Answered

I have a dress from a thrift store that is the basis for a fabulous costume for the fantasy convention. Only problem is the hemline is too boring. I came across these dresses in a catalog that seem to have exactly the feature I need to put on my dress, but I have no idea how it is done. I've scoured the internet so now I pass it on for your consideration... see below.


The dress apparently has ties inside that you can cinch up to control the level of blousing.
Thanks for your help!
