Simplicity’s Suede Says
Suede, a former Project Runway contestant, recently released two menswear patterns to his Simplicity Suede Says line. Each pattern has two variations—classic and rock.
Pattern 1947 is a zip-down jacket. Choose from different trim and collar variations and an optional detachable hood. A wide fabric range is appropriate such as corduroy, leather, suede, twill or denim.
Pattern 1948 is a pants pattern with the classic and rock variations. The classic version has slant-front pockets and back patch pockets with flaps. Add a pressed front crease for a dressier look. The rocker variation has additional pockets, decorative seams, and exposed zipper accents. Make these in either twill, denim, corduroy, or nylon sport fabrics.
HotPatterns.com adds to their popular collection with “Mr. H.P. Straight Talking Straight Leg Jeans.” These slightly relaxed-fit jeans have the classic 5-pockets and are designed for mid-weight denim (8- to 12oz). The pattern envelope includes all sizes—34- to 46-inch waist.
