It FEELS so wonderful as you cut it. It LOOKS so beautiful with its variations in nap. It SEWS together in such an amazing way!! It says "FALL" like no other fabric. And it makes a sharp blazer for the college freshman!
Each feature of the pattern looks so sharp with the corduroy.
And the signature of the seamstress - close to his side, but hidden from the view of college buddies. (My daughter once noted that "MOM" held upside-down says "WOW").
I made the buttons on the sleeve-placket actually functional. That will make it a little easier when he wants to roll up his sleeves.
A Christmas present completed - Christmas of 2009!
Just in time for the cooler weather of 2011.
Nothing says "FALL" like brown corduroy!
