  1. An Staute

    This is the warmest vest ever! so cozy and comfy and such a challenge to make. i love it!

  2. Lisa Bond

    Once again I found the pattern to be easy to follow and the instructions very clear. A padded gilet is something I have been wanting to make for a long time but never summoned up the courage to start, so I am really pleased with how this garment turned out. Love it!

  3. Jen K

    This pattern turned out so well! You will end up with a sharp looking vest that’s comfy and practical!

  4. Sheila Hlushak

    This is a wonderful pattern, I loved learning how to use an interlining. Very professional finish with being fully lined and extra warm with the added interlining. I am excited to make more of these vests for spring.

  5. Genevieve Lynne Grossmann

    I really enjoyed the challenge of this pattern and I adore the result. This was a sew to savor and enjoy. Following each step to end up with a truly spectacular result. I will be making more for sure.

  6. Susan Anderson

    I really enjoyed this pattern. It was intimidating at first, but the directions were so detailed and really helped me work through the vest easily. I do not regularly sew with woven material but this project gave me a lot of confidence as I got to try a lot of new skills!

  7. Kelsey Metoxen

    This was my first time making a lined garment with binding and the instructions were incredibly helpful in achieving the perfect vest! The photos were very clear and easy to understand how to sew each step, and the written instructions made it easy to follow along.

  8. Shelley Clark

    I LOVE this pattern. I was intimidated by the zipper the first time I made it but the instructions are great and it was a breeze. It is so versatile and you could make one for everyday of the week.

  9. Angie Kyp

    The Riley vest is a versatile pattern. It’s a detailed project with lots of pattern pieces but the great instructions result in a very professionally finished vest. This is not a quick project but a very satisfying sew. I can’t wait to make another in different fabric for a different season.
