    I would love to win pattern 1897-- it's so cute, sassy, and sweet, but any of the patterns are really fun and funky. Suede is an amazing designer, and I'm happy he's creating patterns through Simplicity.

  14. SilverSews July 17th

    "Pattern 1896 is an attractive, timeless (yet fashion forward) classic design that would be flattering on many figures. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this giveaway."

  15. User avater CrazyJL July 17th

    Please sign me up - I already have the fabrics I need!

  16. User avater jamama July 17th

    Looks like it would be fun to make and wear!

  17. User avater kaponton July 17th

    Love the pattern & the fabric for the long version is awesome!

  18. user-1110710 July 17th

  19. User avater PenPalAnns July 17th

    This patterns looks awesome! I'm going to have to look for more patterns. I love sewing!!

  20. carla109 July 16th

    I was so pleased to find plus sizes for my granddaughter in SuedeSays patterns. I can't wait to try my size if I win! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  21. margodoso July 15th

    Project Runway - my kind of reality show - fitting, sewing, ripping!

  22. Quick easy-sew styles are great for showcasing a great print

  23. railfan July 15th

    These designs inspire me!

  24. User avater KMOM1993 July 15th

    I loved him on Project Runway and glad to hear he has a pattern line.

  25. User avater mpgizmo2 July 15th

  26. hpsauce July 14th

    Simple, and a great way to showcase a great fabric!

  27. MisterStitches July 14th

    I really like the simplicity of this style and all its possibilities. I look forward sewing one of these patterns up.

  28. sensorydeb July 14th

    The style works well for almost everyone and every occasion. A pattern you could make multiple times with minor modifications and have nothing that looks the same.

  29. user-1034827 July 13th

    Please enter my name in the draw, would love to win one of these fabulous designs.

  30. User avater Ashford July 13th

    Nice designs. Stylish, yet not a fad. My latest sewing focus is to make several versions of a garment from the same pattern. So much of my time is spent on fitting a pattern. I want to use it more than once. Don't stop, Suede. Keep them coming. You got our attention.

  31. User avater DunnWithFlair July 13th

    Perfect for my daughter (she's my life-size "Barbie")!

  32. meanlittlemissy July 13th

    Can never have too many patterns. Hope I win!!

  39. anniebananie July 12th

    Thank you for introducing me to SUEDEsays. I love the fact that the dress has wide straps and the tunic is perfect for the not-so-perfect body type. I checked the website for the jacket and its adorable. (Wondering why the giveaway is only for the D5 size and not the R5 (14-16-18-20-22) as well...

    I would love to win a Suede pattern, however I am afraid he has forgotten the plus size lady! We like classic, flirty and edgy garments also!

  65. user-1114374 July 11th

    I would live to try these new patterns!

  66. User avater bbieri July 11th

    I love the jacket with the assymmetrical zipper.
    I am teaching a couple of teen agers to sew and either the tunic or dress patterns would be great for them since they each just finished their first garment. One girl used a project runway pattern. I would give the tunic and dress patterns to them.

  67. User avater Calama July 11th

    Love the jacket! Super stylish. And also like the tunic, could see a lot of use out of that one.

  68. User avater sewhappybjm July 11th

  89. LinnetNC July 10th

  100. User avater PigglyWigglyIdaho July 10th

    I LOVE Suede's work!!! He is always so much fun to watch when he is on TV. But...since moving to middle-of-nowhere Idaho we don't get the great sewing shows like I used to get in the Seattle area. I sure miss them. I love the three patterns and can picture making one of each for some of my grandchildren. Suede, thank you so very much for your edgy contribution to the industry!

  101. User avater keywestgrandma July 10th

    Love the tunic, the jacket is great, and what a great dress!

  116. User avater Lauriepie July 10th

    Spiffy!!! I really like the dress. Been looking for a sundress pattern that has enough fullness at the neckline to accommodate the bustline and has wide straps. Looks chic without looking matronly. LOVE the tunic! Was just going through my stash and I have a great chevron print that would work for both of them!
