Planning to sew a Florence Broadhurst "inspired" dress

These kate spade dresses are from the Florence Broadhurst collection.  I was inspired by these dresses and purchased some new fabric to make a dress of my own.

Bought this fabric at Jo Ann's for $9.99 a yard

The black and white oriental style floral totally reminds me of the Florence Broadhurst prints.  I am thinking of making a simple dress with a full skirt but making it two layers like the one in the Japanese floral print.  Yesterday I was looking around on the web and found this dress made by Jessica of What I Wore. It is not the first time we have liked the same things!  She used the same pattern, Simplicity 2444, that I have been using to make my recent dresses but I change the skirt a little to make it fuller.  I think it is the same exact fabric that I bought too! I will give you an update of the dress but for now, I have to go sew some Sandee Royalty skirts.  Wedding season is upon us and bridesmaids must have their striped skirts!
