How exactly does the illustration resemble the original dress?

We'll have to wait and see what Elizabeth has to say about her creative process! Her post will be coming sometime in the next few weeks.

Contest entrants were directed to create illustrations inspired by the original dress, not exact replicas. I suspect that Elizabeth was inspired by Gothic Lolita, a style of dress in Japan that is loosely based on Victorian dress.
