How do I make a dress that puffs and the bottom like this one? I use the fishing line in the hem but it doesn't make it stand out and the under layer puff like that.

I think you need either a petticoat or underlayer made from stiff fabric like crinoline or stiff tulle.

You also need a skirt with a LOT of fabric in it--a circumference that is a full circle or one that is made even fuller than a circle by the use of inserted godets or panels.

Think fullness shown by these skirts, but very short. McCall's 8257, OOP but findable on e-crater, ebay, or etsy, would be a good starting point for a kid's skirt.

It helps to use fabric with some body and/or extremely full petticoats underneath.

I agree, they're not showing you in the petticoat in that picture.
