I know I have a long way to go on the vest before I need to worry about seaming it, but I've been doing some reading/video watching and something doesn't quite seem right to me if I am understanding it correctly.
I am looking at the mattress stitch seaming and if I understand correctly this is done working on the RS of the work? If done RS doesn't the seaming yarn show on the outside of the garment? Or am I missing something?
What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
You sew into the bars between the edge st and the one next to it (stretch some knitting and you'll see them) and that draws those together and pushes the edge sts to the WS. But the sts pull in and the yarn you sew with gets covered up. Knit up a sample in leftover yarn and practice it and you'll see. It's another one of those things where you have to "trust the process".

It really is magical and astounding! The first time I did mattress stitch I just couldn't believe that seaming something on the right side could just disappear and leave such a wonderful, nearly invisible seam.
