I asked my friend and she told me all she did was find a "puffy" jacket pattern and slightly modifiy it to have the right number of "puffs" to the sleeves and torso. She stuffed the "puffs" with fiber fill to make them stay puffy and she didn't bother adding a zipper since the jacket never really closes.
I don't know how much that helps you, but I wish you the bes tof luck.
