It wasnt too too hard....i cheated a lot....like i shoulda done interfacing and all that crap but i didnt.  only thing that was a little difficult was gathering, but even that wasnt so bad.

I know this thread is a little old but did you find that it was still ok to wear without interfacing? I just made my trial version of this dress (old duvet cover, before I attempt it with nice fabric) and I found that with so many layers of fabric and interfacing it was really tricky... and I want to cheat next time...! Thanks

And, the dress is fab! =)

It was ok, however somehow I've made the front band disappear inside the dress...hmmm I'm determined to figure out how I managed this today... And will probably be left with several versions of the bidcie as a result!!! Teehee! but this was the first pattern I've done without my mother standing over me, and I think I did well.. just read it over a couple of times before you start...

how funny....i just stumbled across this post and said "wow this post sounds interesting", and it was mine (how dumb).  anyway, interfacing, schminterfacing.  ive found that sometimes it is just a waste of time..but of course, it is also very useful.  for this, i dont think the outcome of the dress was affected by not using interfacing.

ooo so pretty! i love the combination of fabrics.  i personally think its a bit too long, altho i assume thast the way they rocked em in the 70s, but cause its so busy its a little overwhelming. but to each his own! and your smile is not goofy, its cute:)

LOVE the fabric combination! Lately, everything I make has that bright pop of color with small neutral-ish prints. You did a great job; the dress looks fabulous, dah-ling  Wink
