Subject: Boys Vest with Side Zip

I am working on my first side-zip vest for my son. I altered a front-button pattern and am now attaching lining. I cannot figure out which parts I can stitch together with ride-sides together and still turn it right-side-out afterwards. Would hate to stitch too much and not be able to turn it or too little and end up with a lot more hand stitching than I need to do. Any insights? Really would appreciate some help - the plan is for him to wear it for his Oireactas solos on Friday! (Yes, I know I'm cutting it close. :} )

It's been awhile but I think you need to do the neckline first, clip curves, pull through and make look nice. Then you can do just the front edge by putting all of the vest inside. Then open and do the same with the back edge. Then you have the side seams left like ususal. (NT)hope that helpsMonday, December 01, 10:31:12am

I do each piec separately. I sew the neckline, armholes, and bottom edges, leaving the sides and shoulders open. Then trim, clip, turn press. Serge the sides and shoulders (lining to fabric), then sew the vest together. This lets me leave room at the shoulders and sides for let out and make it an inexpensive alteration.
