Quilt the Vest
Using Sulky Sliver Metallic #8014 Red, free-motion stipple stitch over both vest fronts, stitching over some of the squares and avoiding others for a decorative, texured look.
After stippling, trim any irregular vest edges before applying the binding.

From the vest fabric, cut a 2-1/2" wide strip on the bias as long as is needed to go around the vest edges. Fold in half lengthwise and press. Match the raw edges of the bias binding to the raw edges of the right side of each of the vest fronts and use regular sewing thread to stitch on the right side of the garment with a 1/4" seam allowance. Fold over the bias binding towards the back of the vest and stitch the folded edge down by hand or machine. Leave two 3" to 6" extensions (depending on your waist measurement) at the back edges for the back belt.
Overlap the right vest front over the left vest front (approximately 1/2") at the center and stitch them together.
Add three buttons. Apply a 1" Velcro closure at the neck edge and a 2" Velcro closure on the waist ties.
Optional: Extended waist strips may be left long and tied at the back waist without adding the Velcro closure.
