I posted this question on the Corinne KAL thread, but I figured I'd post it here as well.  I was doing just fine with the lace pattern on the Corinne dress until I came to the part where I had to knit it flat.  Now I'm messing it up.  My question is this.  Do I simply purl the purl sides, or do I need to be somehow reversing the yarn overs and the slipped stitches?  If I need to be reversing these, how do I do it?  I'm totally bewildered here.  I'm sure the answer will be blindingly obvious when it's before me, but currently I am terrified at the prospect of destroying the prettiest knit item I've made to date, so I figured I'd rather ask a stupid question than mess up too badly.  Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't know the pattern at all, but I assume that the lace pattern has a plain row between each pattern row?  If so, make sure that when you switch to flat that the plain row is a wrong side row so you can purl it across (assuming that the lace is over stockinette, if it's over garter, well then you'd knit the plain row).

Thanks for your help.  The tough part was that there wasn't a plain row.  However, someone helped me out on the Corinne KAL thread, and it worked beautifully!  All I need to do now is the straps and I have me a pretty new dress.  I'm so excited.
