What is the "correct" side of woven pique? Is it the side where the "cups" are deep, or the side that looks flatter?

The side where the cups are deep and bumpier is the right or correct side, and the flatter, softer, fuzzier side is the wrong side of the fabric, or the side that would go against the skin and become the inside of a polo shirt.

Ok, so you are talking about a knit pique. I was wondering about a woven. I was going to sew with the flatter side in on my pretty turquoise woven pique cotton and then I just kept thinking . . . .am I wrong? am I right? Will this be a "loving hands at home-made" kind of wrong decision???

Yes, that would correct. After reading your post I realized I *was* talking about knit pique, but the same applies to woven (and I just checked the pink cotton woven pique in my stash to make sure before answering again). LOL The bumpier (dimpled or weaved) side "out" and the smoother side "in". Here's a definition:

Piqué
A medium-weight cotton or cotton blend fabric with a pebbly weave that looks almost like a check.
and a link to a photo woven pique weave The pink woven pique I have looks just like this photo - the weave is more detailed and shiny on the face and duller on the wrong side. HTH's
