Using pattern Butterick B5880 ( marked on the reverse EASY ) It was not ! It is fully lined with a side zip ( longer than stated as I couldn’t get into it !) and I had to stitch it in by hand as it was difficult to get inside it with the machine. Around the neck I used a double layer of interfacing at the front and single at the back ( only the front was interfaced in the instructions) I had to shorten it – fine with the lengthen/shorten line on the front and back skirt pieces – BUT not given on the overwrap – so that was shortened at the side edge and then tapered to the original line so as not to disrupt the trailing waterfall on the left side. I made a hidden slit under the wrap so that I can wear it-for dancing. Actually it took 3 hours to make the pattern alterations and cut out all the pieces!!
The bolero top (and lining) goes with an earlier project from last summer .
Polyester " silky " bought from a charity shop and lined with fabric left from a previous dress.
