nearly-mrs-R:  from what I’ve read, you should buy the dress 1-2inches longer than you need, depending on how many layers of petticoat you want.so I guess the petticoat will be a bit shorter than the dress?

The petticoat will make the dress shorter, so you need a longer dress. I would do an inch longer dress, or trim the petticoat to fit by taking out layers or trimming the tule.
