I shortened the below waist distance to a few centimeters. You could shorten the vest to the waist line, but I find that the waist line is a bit too high to place the batteries, as I often need to manipulate elements and having the batteries below the waist line works better for me. However, too far done and they create other problems. In the diagram, the red area shows the part of the original block that I cut out to make the vest pattern.
