I did not use the twill tape but I am assuming you would use it the same way you would use bias binding. Sew it to the right side then flip the tape to the inside, press, and topstitch.

Hi. Nice looking vest. I have this pattern and am trying to make a vest for my son out of fleece. I've never used twill before. I'm not understand what the pattern is saying about puting the tape around the arm holes. Can you give me any help or advice?

I have a boy and I love that he loves this vest by his mum! Totally adorable.
