Time to Sew

I was ratting around the bottom of a drawer today and came across a vest I started many years ago. I have a wedding to go to next month and no new clothes, so thought I might finish the vest - yes, I still like it!!
The feature panel is made from a series of experimental machine embroidery bits all sewn together and a rather special antique beaded navy blue bit of scalloped fabric.
I remember now why I didn't finish it. The grey top lapel layer covers the feature - hmmm - maybe I will just have to cut the lapel back to a 3 or 4 cm feature strip. Any other ideas and hints??
