Beautiful and seems easy to do. However, how are off from the edge should the armholes be? I saw from the drawing that one armhole is farther away than the other, but the explanation does not specify by how much.

You need to measure your shoulder width (see step 5).  That will determine where to put the armholes; you'll need enough fabric to wrap partway across on the right side, and fully across from the left so you have the asymmetrical look.  Or vice versa if you want it to wrap like most women's clothes.  Or put them equidistant from the edges and the vest will meet in the middle.

In your instructions you say to cut the fabric into a rectangle of a yard long (36") by what?  The width of the fabric?  (45", 60")?  Your own preference?
