Welcome to the Forums! the dress pattern is Buttrick 4790. It was actually in the title. I've not found a petticoat that works under it due to how the front is made.

That looks great.

I've had the pattern for years, and I'm thinking i really should get on making it...

I love the style but wouldn't know how to get the pattern (I live in the UK) and I'm a beginner, never even tried to us a pattern or even make something wearable.

Oh, man!  That turned out so nicely!  I've been going through a bias tape-making phase and that version might be the thing that gets me back into sewing real clothes after 20 years.  Not just costumes anymore for this T!  (maybe)

Great dress!

I've made quite a few of these, for myself and 3 for bridesmaids. I usually have to do some extra alterations - mostly darts in the bust area, but it's a great simple pattern.

Nice job!

I love it! I think I agree it looks great lined and without the bias tape. Very cute!

I always thought the pattern was pretty but not anything I would make, but this dress is gorgeous... I'm going to buy the pattern tomorrow!
