Featherwale corduroy is one of my all time favorite fabrics for Fall and Winter sewing. It is soft enough for smocking while at the same time just warm enough for our mild winters in the south. What's on my list for corduroy? I have turquoise for a dress with smocked snowmen, hot pink for an appliqued jumper, and black for a dressy coat. A little sewing time would be nice now.... :) Michie'
