Have you been wearing corduroy today to celebrate 11/11/11, the day that "most resembles corduroy"? I have. I've been wearing my tan cords made from Burda 9-2009-113.
Being a cordophile, it's not surprising that I stumbled upon the Corduroy Club sometime last year. I didn't join, but maybe I should?
I remember my love of corduroy began in 3rd grade with a pair of light grey, pin wale corduroy elastic waist pants which I wore as often as I could. This was the eighties, the era of stirrup knit pants and bright bulky sweaters. But these wonderful, comfy pants with the appealing vertical ridges blinded me to fashion. Or it could be they transcended fashion.
I was really hoping to finish a whimsical 1970s corduroy jacket with blue birds in time for 11/11/11, but haven't even had time to prepare the pattern. Hopefully you'll see it soon.
