I use this method when making a lined vest. I stitch the shoulders (and center back, if there is a seam) together of the fashion fabric and the lining. Then I place right sides together and pin so corners and seam lines line up. I stitch around the armholes and the outside edge of the vest. This leaves the sides open. I turn and press (important!) the vest. At this point you can turn half-way inside out to stitch one side seam. This leaves one side that cannot be sewn in a traditional way. I place the right side of one side over the other side, rights of ff together. It is layered right side of lining down, matching right side of ff up and other side of ff on top of that. Sew these three layers at the seam line. Then you fold the matched ends of remaining lining side around these three layers at the top and bottom. You stitch about 3" from the bottom and top. There will be a few inches not sewn which can be stitch-witched or hand-sewn.

looks like this when pressed and almost done
