oooo, I have had a similar problem with the cold-weather 'pointedness' on one of my dresses, I think I'm going to go find some foam bra cups! It's a lovely dress and those are very insightful improvements!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I live in Santa Cruz and the weather is great right now, so I'm thinking about rocking this dress on my next day out. Smiley
Adding the elastic is easy; I cut out a loooooong thin rectangle for the waistband, folded it in half (hotdog, not hamburger) and then sewed along the two edges. After spending nearly half an hour turning the darn thing right-side-out I threaded the elastic through, sewed the edges of the elastic together, and then sewed the fabric covering shut. I'm definitely up for some new ideas on pretty ways to close the tube of fabric, though; mine didn't turn out so pretty, but because of the way I attached it to the skirt and straps you can't see it.  Embarrassed
