As a semifinalist on television’s groundbreaking fashion design show, Project Runway, Suede became known for his edgy designs, dramatic style, and use of the third person when referring to himself. This driven designer has since partnered with Simplicity, launching the bold and youthful SUEDEsays pattern line. Perfect for beginning sewers, SUEDEsays patterns are available at, but enter here for your chance to win three of these great patterns!

Leave a comment on this post before the deadline—11:59 p.m., February 14th, 2012—and you could be the lucky winner to receive copies of 2182, 2233, and 2222. All patterns size D5 (4,6,8,10,12).  The winner will be chosen at random and announced on February 15th.

Suede was featured in "Designer Insider" in the Spring 2012 issue of SewStylish--on newsstands now!

SueB55 writes: I saw these in the pattern book and thought they were well styled, can be updated many ways. It's great that Suede is being recognized for his creative genius. The sewing world has needed fresh input for the last 25 years. Even though I am older, I would still make and wear (longer length) these clothes and enjoy them.

I'm a huge fan of rompers, and this one was cute without being trashy! Would be much more awesome to win though!

Still lovin' the purple hair too! ;)
