Corduroy is a pile fabric with a nap - it has more shine when viewed from one side than it does the other. When cutting out a garment cut all pieces in the same direction. Unfortunately an un-economical use of the fabric but it is advisable to purchase a meter more than the pattern prescribes. On the bright side this will give you more fabric to play with afterwards.
