cute dress, i like the faux corseting! If you don't like open seams showing on the skirt, another idea would be to finish them in a flat-felled seam. That looks professional on both sides.

Another pattern I need to buy! Love the blue faux lacing, such a nice contrast. And I can use up all that hook and eye tape that I bought! Funny it ran small - Simplicity normally runs huge. Thanks for the advice about lining, I hate things that aren't lined.

::arianamaniacs:: I totally forgot about flat-felled seams! Thanks so much, I might do that instead of lining the skirt :3

This is teh Catherine Zeta Jones costume llok from teh Zorro movies. Like you I am learning costumes can be worn as regular clothing if done with good fabric. =) Looks like a really fun dress.

I also made this pattern (size 20), first as a muslin and then with better fabric, but my experience was that the pattern ran large rather than small. I agree with the reviewer that the lengths were shorter than advertised. The knee-length one that I made for the muslin came only mid-thigh and for the final version I made the long one and it only came to the knee. Also modified the pattern somewhat to put boning in the seams to make the bodice more corset-like.

I've just finished making the bodice (size 18), and yes, if you're using heavy material, it's hard to turn out. My solution was to leave the strap partially unstitched on one side also, pulled the fronts through this hole, then through the back. Then I finished it by putting a seam down both finished sides of the shoulder band. Still looks good if you can sew straight, and this would be covered if you finish with braid. I also found the sizes ran large, I had to do 1 inch seams when sewing the front to the back to pull it in. I made mine from offcuts as a test, cost about $5 to make in total, and it turned out awesome. Found it fairly easy even after a 10 year break from sewing.
