In reply to: Md 's message, "I have seen a few posts recently regarding professionally finishing boys waistcoats with side openings. Is there a video or tutorial online, i have made them with standard opening, but am stumped with the new style." on Tuesday, January 17, 11:31:51am

You can't turn an entire circle---ie the neck---so you leave the shoulder seam on the zipper side unstitiched. After you turn the vest you can stitch that seam just by flipping that seam right sides together.
I then top stitch around the neck, and insert the zipper.
You can also do the pieces so that the lining is not a case lining. In other words so the seams are accessible...thus making alteration easier.
