So here's the million dollar question: Does it fit?
Ha! No!! No, it was about a million miles too big. I took it in about 5", and it's still too big, but at least now it's wearable. I may still try to take it in a bit more... we'll see. Lesson here is never, ever trust the pattern measurements! Measure the pieces for yourself. Or pin them on yourself. I wish I had a dressform. This never would have happened if I had. But... I still love the dress.
