    1. I'd like to help, but you're going to have to be more specific...

    2. When you put it together where did you start I did the top shoulder seams then the outer edges but when I tried turning I had a lot to go thru the little part of shoulder seams I know I must have done something wrong but not sure should I make each part separate then put together or what did I do wrong?

  6. Hi there, Ive making the little vest & I've done the shoulders seams. Before I do the two layers & sew the circumference should I sew the side seams first? Help if you can. thanks
