    Jan 9, 2009, 3:15 AM - Vest Collar closure? #1

    My side is working fine on the vest I made tonight, it looks great, but I'm not sure I'm satisfied.
    I used velcro on my closure and put a small peice at the edge of the shoulder pad so it stays in place. it still comes apart all the way from the neck down to the waist along the left side but I'm not sure if that shoulder will look right or if it'll be better after I attach a shoulder plate.
    how do your collars close on your vests? How did the screen used one close?
    Thanks for any help I can get!

    Velcro, on the left shoulder (pic courtesy of Jango ref. cd).

    but see, it looks like it stops just short of the edge by maybe a half to 1 inch. it'd make sense that way cause then the shoulder pad would be attached to the front as well, but am I just seeing things? how did anyone else work it out?
