Before cutting, you should find out in which direction the pile lies. Lay the corduroy face up and stroke your hand on the surface:
✔️if the hand goes “along with the fur”, the pile is directed downward;✔️"against the fur" - the pile is directed upwards.
Opinions of experts, regarding whether the pile on the product should go up or down, diverge:
✔️Thin and soft velveteen often being cut with pile upward.✔️A wide-line and high-pile velveteen usually would be cut with pile down.
So it is up to you which way to choose:
✔️Pile up - the colour seems richer, but dust and so on will stick to the finished product.✔️Pile down - the colour will be paler, but dust clings less and clothes are easier to clean.
The most important:When working with velveteen always lay out the pattern pieces in one direction. So, regardless of the direction of the pile, parts of the garment will look the same colour.
