Corduroy fabrics never really go out of fashion and for the last couple of years we have seen a real revival of this fabric, especially for the fashion conscious. Corduroy fabrics have been used throughout the '70s, '80s & '90s fashion revival, for everything from flared jeans and matching blazers, to cute and practical pinafore dresses, skirts and jeans style jackets.
An excellent, practical alternative to velvet to add a soft and luxurious look to your A/W wardrobe, this hard-wearing breathable cotton & elastane blend is not just for country clothing and children's wear.
Our Fire - Stretch Corduroy (9 Wale) - that means 9 cords per inch - is just the right gauge, not too fine and not too chunky, so suitable for a host of stylish and practical clothing for the whole family. This stunning, vibrant orange/ red tone has a soft velvety sheen, feels so soft and strokeable, is stable until stretched and has just enough elastane across the width for comfort when constructing garments that are slightly fitted. This corduroy has a soft drape quality which is ideal for gathered skirts and dresses, like ever popular peasant styles or simple elasticated waist trousers and skirts.
Make comfortable garments for you and yours, from baby's and toddler's trousers & dungarees, to grown up stylish pleat-fronted trousers or trendy jean styles with matching blazers or denim style jackets. Pretty winter dresses with ruffled tiers or smock style pinafore dresses, neat pencil or jeans style skirts, practical pinafores, cosy shirts and shirtdresses. You can use your scraps for hats, caps, and bag making too. Corduroy is definitely not dated!
