i do not know for sure how sucessful this would be, I have not tried this yet, but am thinking about it. Basically you would gather your supplies: 1 basic white dress. 2 paint brushes, varied sizes would be best. 3 fabric paint, NOT the puffy squeeze tube kind (put textile medium in regular acryllics if you have them, it works fine just read the directions on the bottle!). 4 paper towels and 5 clean water, for cleaning brushes after color changes. 6 newspaper to protect your work surface and to place inside your dress to help prevent the paint from bleeding through.
it is best to prewash the dress to open up the fabric, and remove any chemicals/residues from manufactoring or prior wear. Lay newspaper to protect your work area, place the dress out flat (front side) add a few sheets of newspaper inside.
I like the example dress because it is a bunch of loose strokes, just vary the length and colors of your strokes (keeping them going in 1 direction would be best). Be sure to clean your brush thoughly between the color changes to prevent muddy or discolored strokes, it is best to work with the lightest colors first, such as yellow and work up the rainbow 
(r.o.y. g. b.i.v.) towards purple. allow the front-side to dry completely before continuing on to the back/sides. once dry repeat strokes on the back, be sure to check the direction of the strokes on the front. when dry, check to be sure the sides of your dress do not have any empty areas, if so add some strokes. Once it is all dry refer to the bottle of your paint/ textile medium and check if any further steps are needed to heat-set the paint to the dress (usually a cycle in the dryer). It should be easy once you get started, sorry if my instructions are confusing... ask if you have a question and I will try to clarify... Once I do this for real I will let you know how it went :)
