Ariel Pink Dress

I would like to attempt this dress
http://www.luckcos.com/images/v/2013...3698005391.jpg

I got a good deal on the perfect fabric at a resale store, 13$ for 6.5 yrds, so I bought it
I was just wondering do you think that will be enough for just the pink in the picture?
I'm 5 foot 2, bust 39, waist 34, and hips 41

I'm struggling to find an adequate pattern to gauge fabric amounts, so if anyone can suggest a pattern as well, I'd be very thankful

I think I'll use this pattern for the bodice http://www.simplicity.com/p-8201-mis...stume.aspx#t-0

This pattern for the skirt http://butterick.mccall.com/b6113-pr...hp?page_id=386

And design the sleeves miself, does that sound reasonable?

Not a pattern persay, but a video tutorial (the are 3 or 4 videos to this tutorial I believe.) I haven't watched her Ariel one, but she usually references what patterns she uses and is very good at explaining things most of the time. So hopefully this helps a little bit.
