Corduroys in general are having quite a revival. Fashion often dictates our choices when dressmaking, whether you follow the fashions to the book or loosely make a reference to them. We have been seeing corduroy fashions from the ’70s - ‘90s filtering down onto today's high street. Perfect for a cosy layer for outer clothing or for comforting shirts and dresses come A/W
Favoured for classic styles such as country wear and children’s clothing because of its comfortable, hard-wearing and classic style, there are a host of things you will want to make from Golden Tobacco - Fine Needle Cord (15 Wale).
This Fine Needle Cord fabric sports a warm brown (tobacco hue) and is a rich autumnal and comforting colour and conveys a feeling of trust and reliability. Perfect for casual attire and outdoor clothing with a country style.
This stroke-able, soft and velvety brown fine needlecord has approximately 15 wales (cords) per inch, making it superfine and an excellent alternative to velvet for accents on collars, pocket flaps etc often featured on country tweed- like our Heart of Huddersfield collections for jackets and coats. Stable width and lengthwise this 100% cotton fabric is breathable and hard-wearing, yet boasts a soft drape quality waiting to be gathered into feminine styles.
Make super comfy garments for you and yours, from baby's and toddler's dungarees and trousers (add some richly coloured cotton flannel to turn ups and cuffs on matching jackets), to grown-up and stylish pleat-fronted trousers, Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers, boiler suits and jumpsuits. Get creative and use Golden Tobacco for quilted jackets – such as the Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studio. Adding a bespoke patchwork lining, batting (wadding) and then quilting your design through onto the corduroy will make for stunning effects.
Take advantage of the soft drape quality and make pretty, tiered dresses (prairie style) for your favourite little girls, and why not make a grown-up version too? Adding colourful embroidery, smocking or applique will create a #cottagecorestyle.
