Because the front of the vest is left open, you will need to add a seam allowance to the center front line if you haven't already done so. You will also need to modify the back neckline slightly to conform to the changes made to the front neckline - essentially, broadening the "dipped" region so that the shoulder seam is the same length as found for the front block. Here, I've also added in the seam allowance.
