Pattern Pieces Not Matching Up

Hello! I am very new here and I don't know if I'm putting this post in the right place but hopefully it works out. 

I'm working on my first corset using TV110. I don't have a lot of sewing experience at all so this is a bit of an adventure for me. I've made one mock-up which fit quite well and was comfortable, but I wasn't satisfied with how well I'd cut some of the pattern pieces. They didn't really line up when I was sewing them together and also seemed to be of slightly varying heights. Nothing drastic but a little annoying. 

Today I was re-tracing the pattern pieces and laying them on top of one another to make sure they fit properly, when I noticed that the seam of #4 and #5 isn't quite lined up. The edge of #4 also extends higher than the edge of #5. They are both cut to the same measurements so I know that isn't the problem. I might simply be a bad tracer. Should I completely re-trace the pattern, or not bother with it and trim the fabric so they match when I sew them together?
