I am making it in a - probably poly - stash fabric in a teal/black heathered sort of weave.
Only after I had cut this out and found myself completely baffled by the first paragraph of instructions did I notice this pattern is rated 3.5 out of 4 dots in difficulty. I think now I have figured it out and am past the most confusing steps so I have taken some photos of the construction below in case it helps anyone. You may want to hold off taking any of my advice until the dress is actually finished though just in case....!
As an overview the dress is made up of a main body with an upper front and back overlay. Underneath that the dress bodice is partially made of lining material which is applied so that it sandwiches the raw edges of the centre front and back. Clear as mud? Thought so, here are the photos:

Stitch the shoulder seams, then you are ready to attach the overlay pieces. I suspect dealing with the corners is going to be a bit tricky, I'll take some photos during that stage too.
