From Helen's Closet:

The Wildwood Jacket and Vest is the ultimate quilted garment pattern. Learn how to sandwich layers of fabric and batting together to create a lovely quilted textile that you transform into a cozy and versatile layering piece. Wildwood features unique overlapping shoulder and side seams, making it an easy pattern to adjust for your preferred fit. The edges are bound with bias tape that can be sewn in a contrast fabric for an outlining effect. Roomy patch pockets are the perfect size and shape, and Wildwood closes in the front using snaps. This is a medium-weight jacket or vest that is perfect for transitional seasons and layering. The Wildwood pattern includes three length options for both the vest and the jacket: high-hip, low-hip, and mid-thigh.

Recommended Fabrics: Light to mid-weight fabrics with no stretch (3-6 oz) for both the outer fabric and the lining. Cotton, flannel, linen, wool, and hemp are all good choices. Use the batting of your choice for the middle layer. If you are using cotton and polyester batting, the vest/jacket will be washable and dryable. Silk or wool batting will need to be hand washed or washed on a gentle cycle. Pre-quilted fabric is also a great option for Wildwood.
