How have I missed so much progress. The plates all look great, wonky due to tape but size and space look good. I have no clue on sewing things as I would probably end up with a needle through a finger if I attempted that.

As Kavryn said, edging will get rid of the fraying around the armpit and collar. For the main opening, it looks like all it needs is to be unpicked and folded the opposite way. Currently the fraying edge has been folded outwards which leaves it visible. It needs to be folded inwards, and then fold it again so that the fraying edge is completely hidden. Double rolling a hem stops further fraying as the edge cannot get caught on anything and it stops you ending up with a ragged looking edge that's coming apart. I also tend to try and use smaller stitches and use backstitch rather than a running stitch, it makes the sewn line much more secure. Once that's changed over it should be much more invisible when you're looking at it.

Thanks Kris! Good to talk to someone who knows a bit about sewing :)
Let me explain a bit more: I took a blue button up shirt and used a sleeve to make a panel that covers the buttons. It's totally in the front :( You can see it if you look for it under my chest diamond and in that area. Should I just throw it out? My vest was the very first thing I made so I had no standards, haha.
It sounds like it may not be approvable because that is in the front, not the back. Just want to make sure before I either attach plates or throw it away that I'm making the right decision ;)

Have a great day! Mar'eyir shereshoy!

Welllll you could try putting it on backwards :P but if that doesn't work then yeah, you may wanna make a new one.

Given that the shirt seems to fit you well, what I'd do is permanently tack (quick stitch) the front panel closed, then open up the side seams and use the shirt parts as template pieces for a new vest. You'll also be able to add the fastenings at the sides instead of the front or back that way. My first vest (made from an old leather jacket) met the same fate.

Also just looking back over the plate designs, they're all looking pretty good now, with the exception of the knees - might want to just increase the size of them a touch, or add a little bit that goes further round the sides. Really digging the colour scheme though.
