I didn’t find it too difficult to sew this dress despite all the many pieces. It is a good pattern, very flattering.

Below are the different steps of the sewing. Creation of the bodice, the front and back of the dress. The front and back put together. Creation of the lining that is added to the dress and finished dress front and back.
