I think part of it comes down to experience, and learning about what fabric is right to use. I've tried making dresses in my inexperience with fabric that i didn't know how to work with properly. the result was seems bursting a couple hours after wearing it.
you learn what went wrong, you learn what works, and you develop from there. sometimes making a costume isn't just about making it from scratch. it could be about sourcing bits and bobs from different places such as charity shops, and piecing it together and then adding little bits to finish it off. such as a plain black coat can be very easily made steampunk buy accessorising it with chains, cogs, wheels, compass...
sometimes, it's about taking a concept and thinking how can i make that into a dress? Last year i made myself a gameboy dress. i went to the level of actually printing out a tetris screenshot on t-shirt transfer, and i was pretty pleased with the results. I've a concept in mind at some point to make a dress inspired by a wiimote... cause i'm a weirdo like that XD
There was a fantastic dress (totally should have come in at least 3rd in the masquerade imo) at LFCC where the girl had made from scratch a ballgown which was the Tardis, ok, it wasn't the best sewing job if you looked up close, but it was a fantastic idea, and really well done.
anyway. rambled for a bit now :)
