Costuming update, for those who care

What are the chances of matching up a seam corner perfectly? (four pieces match up, perfect cross)

Now what are the chances of doing it again?

See what is so fun about sewing? Okay, but I managed to hit corners both times I needed to. Looks great! I am adding top stiching to help with the bulk of the seam, as this fabric is extremely bulky, and does not iron well. I am thinking that this doublet will need no trim at all except for the buttons. It is looking good, despite having to rip out nearly every damn seam I sewed tonight. :)

I am quitting while I am ahead. Too tired right now to risk messing up badly.
