I too did not like the method of leaving the side seams raw. I trimmed them and then finished them with single fold bias tape, as is done between the bodice and the peplum. I am quite happy with this, in fact I love the outfit. I made a 3 tiered heavy tulle petticoat to wear with it. Have not made the hat yet.

If a lace-up-the-front bodice does not fit, you can make a panel a few inches wide, in a contrasting fabric, grommet it and lace up either side. It looks fine, and saves you from having to make a new bodice.

Very nice!!! I agree with you about it being so hot in polyester at outdoor events. But your outfit is so cute, I would try going on a cloudy day!!
