Create a dreamy baby wearing vest for men + women, by converting our popular Trailblazer vest into a stunning baby-wearing garment. The two nifty "zip in" panels - for both baby-wearing and pregnancy - can be removed when not required for a truly versatile garment.
This is an add-on to the men's and women's Trailblazer Vest. You need to either own a Trailblazer Vest pattern, or purchase the bundle using the dropdown menu for all the required pattern pieces.
Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with upcycled fabrics.

Please note: The Nestledown babywearing vest is not a stand alone carrier. The vest must be worn combined with a front wearing carrier as it does NOT hold the baby on its own!
I found the design creative and fun. My daughter-in-law selected this, and I only had to fit a couple of seams for her and our new Grandboy! Instructions were clear, concise - a pleasure to sew.
I absolutley love this pattern. I’m still a beginner, perhaps an advanced beginner now, and it was a breeze to do. The fb chat group are so helpful and the tutorials come with videos as well, which I found incredibly helpful. First time sewing zips and it all went sew well (sorry haha) ! Highly recommend this pattern along with the trailblazer vest. Added bonus of panel being removed if you’re not baby wearing x
I have worn both of my children but hadn't found a stylish vest that is comfortable and fits well. The nestledown first like a glove. It's comfortable, fitted and oh so cozy. And a breeze to sew!
What another wonderful pattern! I was a bit worried about sewing all the zippers but with the video tutorials my zips came out perfect and it was sooooo easy. I have been converted and now want to sew more zippers. Thanks for a beautiful pattern and a super easy to follow tutorial.
I absolutely love this pattern! It’s perfect for the chilly weather and snuggling my little one close so she stays warm!
