Sewing and working with Suede or Ultra Suede (Fabric to look like suede) 

Handmade Reversible Jacket: one side fleece, one side Ultra suede fabric.


About Suede - Real Suede fabric is actually the opposite side of leather. It is for the advanced seamstress.  Ultra suede, as shown above, is much easier to work with and can be used for many things.  If you are a beginner seamstress or designer, I suggest you work with ultra suede.  It is a wonderful soft fabric that gives beautiful results when sewn together properly.
Uses for Suede - Suede fabric is mostly used in jackets, vests, hats, gloves, and skirts.
Average Cost - Real suede can be quite costly.  Ultra suede is much more economical and can be used for making more things.
Comments - Ultra suede is a great fall/winter fabric to work with and comes in many colors which can usually be found at fabric stores during the cooler months.  Real suede is made from an animal "hide" which it's uses in the olden days were to sit on for warmth and comfort, or to wrap around you to keep warm.  If you make a garment from real suede keep in mind it's main purpose is to keep one warm. Also your garment should be lined as you do not want real suede against your skin as it could cause an irritation.
