I got this pattern because there are NO kwik sew dealers in town anymore.
I'll order an easier pattern but I'm getting started on this one in the

The pants look really simple.

The vest, not so much.

Do I really need to HAND SEW the contrast binding onto the vest?  Can't it
be stitched on the machine I realize it might look different but I hate hand

Also, is basting hand basting, or can I use my machines baste stitch?  Or
fabric spray adhesive?

You can probably machine sew the binding.  Why not pin baste and then
sew?  That's what I do if I baste at all...

I will try top stitching the binding . I cannot see any reason I couldn't.
Pin! I can do that!
