I honestly don’t buy many patterns anymore. I am busy enough sewing for testing, or promoting, and have more patterns than I care to count that I have never sewn yet. I need to make more time to sew for fun…
But I had bought some spider web print fabric that was released recently, for Halloween, and at the same time, I bought some red french terry, thinking I would make a Spider-Man inspired hoodie for my four year old. I searched a little bit for a good color-blocked hoodie pattern, considered the ones I already had, and did a little internet research on Spidey hoodies that were already out there, to get some inspiration. And nothing jumped out at me, so I moved on for a bit.
And then (and then, and gentlemen, and then…I’m sorry. Probably nobody will get where that reference is from. Haha!) the Summit Peak Hoodie from New Horizons released. I immediately bought it, and equally as immediately, sewed it up! I loved the style of it. I love that there is zip-up or pullover options. The color blocking was perfect. It works easily for boys and girls, and I hear an adult version is coming!
It is so perfect. I cut this and sewed it in one short afternoon, filled with many interruptions. It’s a simple raglan jacket. There’s nothing complex about it. This is the first zipper I have chosen to do. Meaning, I’ve sewn one when it was assigned in a test or promotion, but I have never picked a pattern with a zipper to do for fun. I’m so happy with how the whole thing turned out!
The size range is amazing, it includes 12-18mo-16. The tutorial is clear, and easy to follow, all necessary markings were included on the pattern pieces, and it was generally an easy, satisfying sew.
I keep old shoe laces and hoodie drawstrings, and found this blue one in my stash. It’s a little long, but I thought the color was appropriate. The pockets are blue too, I thought a smidge of that color would help give the Spidey vibe.
You can’t go wrong with this pattern.
I love sewing for boys, especially this one ❤
