Yes, I did post this in the regular clothing board, but I wanted to try here to, since I want to finish this tonight!

I'm making an Easter suit for my son who's 3.5 months.  I have a little suit that fits him that I made the pattern from.  It's just slacks and a vest.  The vest I have is fully lined, turned, and then top stitched.  I have looked and looked at the ready-to-wear vest and it looks at though they sewed lining and outer right sides together, leaving an opening at the back "hem" to turn it, and then top stitched the whole thing.  They even sewed the armholes before turning the vest.

I'm trying that.  I have right sides together, everything is sewn except for a small opening at the bottom hem.  I've even sewn the armholes.  I can't turn the vest.  I've looked at the RTY vest again, and they did indeed sew the armholes before turning.  How can this be?  Can anyone help me.

Thanks!

IIRC you leave a shoulder seam open and turn through there

I had that same problem on a vest I made recently!  I ended up leaving the arm wholes unsewn since I was going to top stitch anyway.  HOpe you finished it.

In order to turn the vest you need to leave the shoulders open and turn it right side out through them.

This reversible, buttonless wrap dress tute will show better than I can explain.

Thanks for the link to the tute, elijor.  I gave up for now, so no new suit for Easter.  When I finish it I'll be sure to post it.  Thanks for all the advice, everyone.
