Could someone please help me understand these instructions. it says. "Stitch Hem Facing 11 to lower edge of front lining." I get that part. Then it says "Bring symbols on front lining to corresponding symbols on hem facing, as shown. Baste raw edges together. Am I completely enclosing the raw edges? That leaves a weirt kind of pleat and then my hem facing isn't long enough to line up evenly with the bottom of the collar. If you've made this vest and can walk me through this step or even direct me to a picture blog or something it would be great. I'm making this vest for my sons prom this Sat.

Haven't made this but I do believe you will have a pleat between the lining and the fashion fabric - this is quite normal

The best suggestion I can give you is to search the site other for other members who have sewn this - I just did and I think there are about 7 and am sure any one of them would be happy to lend a hand.

Good luck

Carolyn
