It looks really good. With a vest, you usually can turn the garment inside out through the shoulder, through the center (if the lining is seamed), or even the bottom. The lining is supposed to be a little bigger than than the shell fabric. It's folded in and controlled in the last stages.

It sounds like hard work but the final result is very good! I have this pattern and your review was very good and with all the details. I really like your vest!

Thanks for the added info on turning inside out. I still can not figurer out that puzzler. Now I have added info on the trick.

Looks great. You can understitch by hand now, if the lining rolling is bothering you. Using a hand needle with single thread, stitch the lining to the seam allowances, making sure not to catch the outer fabric. It's a pain, but doable. Also, pressing with a lot of steam and using a clapper would help.

Hmm, I will have to think about the understitching, didn't even cross my mind since it wasn't in the instructions. Thank you everyone for your nice comments and suggestions!

Cute! It fits beautifully. I like the way you are wearing it with the tank underneath. Makes me want one.

Looks perfect to me. And thanks for the review. I have been looking for a vest pattern for fall. Great job on your project!

It looks great! You got a really good fit. Did you understitch the lining? That would help keep it inside.
