I'm making this dress:

The fabric I chose is a little transparent so I had to get some lining. The skirt part doesn't call for lining so there are no instructions. There is a zipper in the back. I'm having trouble figuring out how to attach the lining and main fabric.

Also how do I do the bottom dress with two fabrics?

Just cut twice for the bottom skirt pieces-one for the outside and one for the lining-then sew them together-

i'm not sure what you mean about using two fabrics for the bottom dress?

separately, with the hem on the lining a couple of inches shorter than the hem on the main skirt. Or you could add a trim to the lining and make a feature of it poking out.

I would pin the lining to the outer skirt and sew the zipper through both.  As the lining will be attached to the outer skirt at the waist, I would leave the sides and bottom of the lining free and unattached from the outer skirt for free movement and then hem the lining about an inch shorter than the outer skirt.  Hope this helps some.  I love this pattern - I bought it also a couple of weeks ago when patterns were on sale here.   Smiley  Happy Sewing!

I do interlinings, which means I cut the pattern twice (once out of the lining fabric, once out of the fashion fabric), stitch each piece together (fashion fabric to lining fabric), then stitch the whole damned thing together.  It sounds more difficult than it is.  I actually find it easier and quicker than just doing a standard lining.
