Normally, you would do this by sewing the shoulder seams of the vest together, then the sides of the vest under the arms. Proceed to sew the lining together in the same order. Now put the lining right side against the outer fabric right side, and sew the two together at the neck and armholes. I also sew the hem seam joining the front piece to the lining, but leave the seam between the back piece and the lining open. Press the seams open. Now pull the two layers through the opening left between the back piece and the lining, You now have a vest that is almost completed. We will leave the back hem open, as we will install all the electronics through this opening.
