Title: Question: Vest closure
Post by: Ko'rizna Falco on Oct 19, 2018, 07:59 PM
Alright, I decided to make my own vest. My first sewing endeavor, thankfully my wife has sewn before.

My question on the vest is for the closure. I was thinking of doing an overlapping flap on the side (one or both not sure yet) of the vest that closed with Velcro my thinking is that way I can get it pretty snug without having to be super exact on the measurements and it is less sewing as well.

Is this a permissible way of doing a vest? My question is that it would leave an open flap/seam of sorts where the flap ends toward the back of the vest is that ok or do I need to think of something else?

As long as the velcro is completely concealed by the flap it's fine... if you want some reference take a look at the mow studios replica boba fett vest as it uses this very method of closure. ;)

Thanks Jett that is a perfect reference, and exactly what I was talking about. I'm glad that made sense I wasn't sure I explained it well enough.
