I am making Simplicity 2174, a princess line dress in a poly/rayon fabric. I am thinking about underlining the dress with silk organza to reduce wrinkling, reducing potential bagginess, and make the material less see-through. My question is, how would you attach the two materials together? I originally thought to use diagonal basting, like in a tailored garment, but I am not going to put a lining layer, so think that this might look ugly on the inside. Suggestions?

you could use a simple running basting stitch to hold the fabrics together until you sew the seams...anything that keeps the fabrics together and is easy to remove later

Maybe this will help... I have made a few column/sheath style dresses of lightweight rayon and used the Ambiance rayon lining as the underlining and it also does double-duty as the lining. I treat the two layers of fabric as one and serged the edges together. Nobody sees the intside, my fabric has the support it needs, and !voila! it is also lined, too. More from the school of "git 'er done", I don't hand baste; I layer carefully and use lots of pins. I know that hand basting is the correct way to do it, but I will take a shortcut if I can achieve the same results.

iPad's auto-correct is my enema.

Agreed little to no hand sewing! And I like your lining/underlining idea, I do the same .
