News from Suede

Dear BPR,

Just wanted to follow up with some photos of the SUEDEsays™ for eCraft ™ dresses I designed using the new eCraft by Craftwell. It is designed for paper cutting but thinking outside the box I used the machine to create these three looks.

1) Butterfly Felt Dress. - I custom designed the tropical filigree pattern on the bodice to resemble lace. I used felt over the reverse side of charmuse to create this dress - along with a healthy dose of tulle. The butterfly skirt shows how 3-d effects can be utilized instead of always cutting things out.

2) Glitter Disco Mini Dress - I created a lace slip dress as the base and used the eCraft to cut out hundreds of circles and then stitched each one on by hand.. YIKES talk about a challenge!!!

3) Upside Down Tree Dress - I created a linen bustier style bodice and covered it with self adhesive wood veneer using the eCraft to cut those customized shapes that fit perfectly into the style lines. Then I made a raw silk skirt and created customized vine-like leaf shapes using the eCraft. Then I stitched the leaves down all over the 8 gore handkerchief hem line skirt to give it the perfect GAGA meets MADONNA look. Suede is sooo ready to dress the girlz!!!

Sending you lots of luv!!!
