I have M6447, and one of the fabric options is "uncut corduroy". I don't understand the "uncut". I have an appropriate amount of ordinary corduroy. How do I know if it's "uncut"?

Woops, I originally said 6448, but I meant McCall 6447.

Its like pinkytoo says. Make sure all the nap is going down ward when you pin the pattern to it.
You just might have a funny piece with the nap going upward and thats you don't want. You can feel which way the nap is laying just by putting your hand over it. Stroke it down is the way you want it. stroke it up is not the way you want it.
Hope this answer your question.

Uncut corduroy is corduory without the "grooves" cut in. It looks and acts a lot like velvet.

Edited to add - you can see a sample here

Is this the same as waleless corduroy?

I believe so. It would be the same.

Thank you. I guess I'll use my corduroy elsewhere.

Sondra, I'm not 100% sure what pattern you're using (the M6448 I found was silly fleece hats for little kids), but there shouldn't be any reason you couldn't use your regular corduroy in a pattern that calls for uncut/no-wale cord. It will have the same general weight, hand and behavior, whether it's cut into wales or not.

I believe uncut or waleless corduroy can be used for any project that regular corduroy can be used for. It does look richer or more expensive when used for a jacket.
