New kate spade/ Florence Broadhurst inspired dress!

 Yesterday while I was supposed to be sewing Katie skirts, I whipped up this little dress inspired by the kate spade Florence Broadhurst Cameo Dress.

There is an inset waistband and a two layer skirt. I made the dress a little longer for a vintage look

I styled it simply with a black cardigan and pearls.
Here is a pic of the original dress

have a great day!

Ohhh, this came out so well!! Are you going to start selling them in your etsy shop? *crosses fingers*

I have one of your Katie skirts, I get SO SO SO many compliments on it! I want to get another, but I haven't been able to decide. LOL!

Gorgeous! I just picked up the pink leather kissing crocs belt in Vegas! As a complete Lilly~aholic, this kate belt works with some of my fave pieces! I love your post about being Over The Top! I too, have to tone it down at times. It is so hard when life is soooooooo exciting!

Love and Hugs,

I live in Houston too. Do you make things to order? I would love a tunic of this fabric. - ChaiLatte79@gmail.com

I like your dress better! Ok, maybe both are good- but you rock it!

This dress is beautiful! What pattern did you use? I have the McCall's Plenty by Tracy Reese 6506 that looks similar but without a waistband. I like the waistband look better... any suggestions?

I have my own bodice pattern that I adapted from somewhere...I don't know exactly where. All I did was shorten it and add a band all the way around to make the set in waistband. I just attached the skirt directly to it. I like putting the band and am also thinking of doing some with contrasting fabric for fun.
