anyway.... back to the vest. here's how i did it:
pin the vest on each side where you would want it to fit:
cut just to the outside of the pins leaving enough room for a seam allowance:
tip: make sure that the bottom hem and armpit holes match up perfectly. this will be the area most noticeably "homemade" if they don't match up.
flip right side out, cut your excess strings
so... this is later that day after i changed into something a little less denim overwhelming and took my hair out. i'm going to do a step by step tutorial of this hairstyle soon. but for now, here's a video on youtube about it.
