This childs puffer vest pattern is fully lined, super cosy and really stylish!

It’s designed to have enough ease to wear a jumper underneath and has interlining (batting) for warmth. The child’s version has princess seams at the back only (flat front).

Not used batting or interlining before? Never fear! Our step-by-step tutorial will show you how. There’s lots of photos so learning new techniques is really fun. It’s an intermediate level pattern but we had some adventurous beginners in our test group and they made some gorgeous vests too! It’s a versatile, fun pattern with gorgeous results you’ll be so proud of.

The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format (pattern pieces only) in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

Suitable for woven fabrics only. Not suitable for knit fabrics. See the materials tab for suggestions on specific fabric types. Serger/overlocker optional but NOT required.

This is the childs version. Also available in ladies (XXS to 5XL) and an 18 inch dolls sizing.

    The Riley Vest had me step out of my comfort zone, but I did so confidently knowing how well the instructions are delivered.

    The Riley vest is really a pattern where you can let your creativity run a little wild. With a few personal adjustments you can make tons of unique vests! But even straight up following the instructions you get a wonderful and useful piece of outerwear. I can’t wait for the spring and I know there will be more made come fall.

    The Riley Vest is one of my favorite outerwear patterns. The vest comes together nicely and I like that the armholes are bias bound making for easy turning of the lining and outer. It looks great on my son which, in a sewing world with infinite patterns for girls and slim pickings for boys, I really appreciate that this pattern works for all of my children.

    This vest was so much fun to make. It came together quickly and looks great. It was a fun opportunity to try out some new skills like quilting, welt pockets and separating zippers. Rebecca Page even included thoughts on how to adjust the pattern to the level of warmth you desire! It was a pleasure to put this garment together and I have quite a few plans for more

    The Riley Vest is a classic style vest and a professional looking finished product. I love how the directions are very detailed and walk you carefully through each step. The double welt pockets, snap on hood and the full lining add a nice level of detail to create a polished look. I am very happy with my Riley Vest!

    Me and my son love this pattern! This is one of my makes that I am most proud of and that people cannot believe I had made it! My son loves the pockets- big enough for all little treasures and the fact that there is a detachable hood is perfect for rainy days. The instructions are so well written and clear that even an adventurous beginner would be able to follow

    The Riley Vest is a beautiful padded vest from Rebecca Page. I can not wait to try it on MissA. It was surprisingly easy to sew
