Pattern Test: Peekaboo Pattern Shop Hampton Hoodie

I had a chance to test a new pattern for myself last week, and I love it! It’s the Peekaboo Pattern Shop Hampton Hoodie  (affiliate link) and it is the grown-up version of the Hangout Hoodie, which is what I used for the Superhero inspired hoodies I made last month. It was easy to make and is super comfy. I used knit I picked up specifically for this project, but I would love to make one in heavier sweatshirt fleece for winter. It’s a quick sew and looks great.

We snapped a few pictures before my husband rushed off to work on a particularly cold and blustery day last week. It 40 degrees cooler that day than the day before, so the hooodie was definitely nice to have.

My only issue was with the hood, it seemed big and kind of has this Jedi-master gapingness thing going on (some might be just the wind that day.) but I understand the pattern had a couple revisions, one of which corrected some feedback about the hood. Honestly, though, I think it is really great with or without the gaping hood, it will definitely be a staple of my winter wardrobe.

I was given a free copy of the pattern for testing, and was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

  1. I love the look of this sweatshirt but I am wondering a couple of things. Is it very fitted? Did you go up a size when you used the heavier fabric? I love your fabric, BTW!

    1. I think the style is intended to be more fitted than I prefer, but I went off the measurements in the pattern when I chose the size, rather than the names of the sizes. I haven’t made the heavier fabric, I think I will make one with sweatshirt fleece, but it is not that much heavier than this, so I doubt I would add a size. Both of these knits were from Joann fabrics in the Doodles Juvenile apparel section, it’s thicker than t-shirt jersey but not super heavy.
