I really want to make a dress similar to this one:
Does anyone know where to start, or of a similar pattern?
Also, I know I saw a tutorial for rosettes around here somewhere, but I cannot find it.
Also, fabric ideas?

wow that is such a beautiful dress! it looks like a basic shift dress but there are no darts because the pin-tucks form the shaping. I really want to make it now too!

I wonder if you could take a basic shift dress pattern and take out the darts, and add in pin-tucks at the front. I'm not sure how you do this though. Does anyone more experienced know? I know you can sometimes convert darts into pleats or gathers.

I might give it a try with this butterick pattern I have http://www.butterick.com/item/B4386.htm?tab=dresses&page=7 You'd also have to take the zip out and put buttons in the back. Then it just looks like grosgrain ribbon on the front with the roses on top.

Not sure about fabric rosettes but I know I've seen a tutorial too. the dress fabric looks like some kind of thick polished cotton? I'm sure it has a special name. Something that pleats well and has some body I think.

I have absolutely no idea if this helps but:

The bottom skirt bit looks really similar to one of the free skirt patterns available at burda.com. You just sign up and download the pattern. 

As for the rosettes, I think there was a tutorial on ellegirl.com but I'm not really sure.  Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Good Luck!

Yep you can eliminate darts, which usually on a dress pattern run through past the waist and hips, you can turn them into the pleats, the middle section looks like a box pleat
The pleats on the top look sewn down and then released at the skirt
NICE dress by the way  Grin
