1910 Corset: Getting to work

I visited Kinkos again yesterday and I finally got the pattern enlarged to very nearly the exact size I needed. I think all the pieces were within 1/2 an inch to 1 inch to the actual size. So I got the pattern home retraced them to keep the master copy safe and voila!

Here they are after being retraced and modified to fit my size.
 So here it is in fabric. Very straightforward and easy to sew together. I imagine the part that will take the longest will be sewing the boning channels.
 I'm a little worried that the length may be slightly off. Too long in the back and too short in the front. Also I think I might have accidentally added too much width to the pattern.So I'm going to look at my pieces and re-size them if needed. I'm waiting on my busk from Vogue Fabrics and after than I'll start the hard work.
