The bodice fits. I thought perhaps before putting on the skirt I should make sure the bodice actually fits. And it does...well, just slightly big in the waist, doesn't fit as snug as it should but I can live with that. Belts hide all sorts of sins :).
No, my plaids don't match. They did when I cut the bodic out but now they don't. Oh well, I can produce period images of plaids not matching if needed :) Just noticed that the trim on the bodice doesn't sit even either. Oh well, eventually I will make a dress that has nothing wrong :).
On to attaching the skirt.
