It's pretty, and do-able. We need more information though, because your question is a bit vague.
Do you know how to use a sewing machine?
do you have a dress form or a patient friend you can do some draping on?
What's your budget? what's your experience level?

Well, assuming you aren't a millionaire with money to burn, the first thing you need to do is work out the budget.

This dress won't hang the way it's drawn without an underneath structure of some sort, like a half hoop or cage bustle type contraption. I see easily 15 yards of fabric in it, and double that for the lining as it's drawn with one. Bare bones minimum cost you are looking at $100, possibly closer to $300 depending on the type of fabric you buy. And that is just the skirt, there's stocking, shoes and the bodice to consider as well. This beautiful dress is not going to be cheap.

I'm not saying it can't be done, just that a lot of non-sewing related things go into a build like this.
