Check out Project Runway designer Suede's three hot looks for Simplicity here. I like them!

I like 2220, particularly the sleeves on the wrap blouse.

Jumpsuits I really don't like, and jumpsuit shorts even more so. Just a personal preference thing. The dress version of that pattern is fine. The 3rd pattern is basically just a circle skirt. Those don't really work for me, plus they are pretty common.

But 2220 has possibilities.

I only like the dress too! Though I love the back of the romper/dress. But my internet doesn't like the flash animations.

And I must be getting old(er) because I don't like the colours of the envelop. I keep thinking they are going to make my hands dirty, LOL!

I find it interesting that Suede will be at the Sewing Expo. It's comforting to see that home sewing is in a up swing, non?

I don't like the envelopes, either -- the whole design of them is so garish, like a mixture of Barbie, Hello Kitty, and some goth teenager's room. But I doubt I am in the demographic for Project Runway -- most of their merchandise is marketed towards tweens and teens, it seems.

I agree that the dress is the most successful of the lot -- very pretty. I love circle skirts and those look adorable, but I already have a bunch of circle skirt patterns in books about making skirts.

What is it with jumpsuits? Does anyone actually see people (adults) wearing them? The only person I ever saw wearing one (and it was a shorts version) was my friend's moronic girlfriend, and she looked like she was dressed up in a sexy silk onesie. We were at an outdoor festival and people were laughing and pointing, I swear. They are the weirdest garment to me.

I haven't sewn any Simplicity patterns in years; however, several people in my Tailoring Class have had great success with them when it comes to fitting. Apparently, Simplicity has really altered the fit of their patterns. Who knew?!

Which is funny to me since it's us old ladies who have all the money.

But I think the point is that this is just one line geared to younger sewers. My daughter is 18 and interested in sewing, but most of the patterns from the big 4 don't interest her much.

We old ladies have all the money, but we won't be around forever. And a few years down the road the young uns will be the ones with money. I mean, if the entire economy doesn't collapse before then.

Actually, I doubt my daughter would like those patterns and she would probably dismiss that Suede guy as a desperate overaged hipster, but still. So, I guess I have mixed feelings about marketing to young people that way. Really independent fashion-minded kids are probably not going to be won over by a cheesy marketing strategy. They might find it condescending. But I guess it doesn't hurt to try. With most patterns, I think the best thing is to ignore as much as possible the art on the package front and just look at the line drawings on the back.

I'm a bit disappointed. The patterns are fun, probably quite easy, but not too original. I hoped that in having PR young designers produce patterns, they'd be allowed their head. I can see that there's a niche for them, and they're probably commercial, but to me, less interesting than what was produced by the PR designers during the show.
