I am currently making corduroy pants and I bought the fabric on a whim at Joann, somehow thinking that 2 yards would be enough for pants. And it was, for everything except the fronts of the pants. Haha. So I had to go back, but my brother was rushing me and I bought 1.5 yards of more grey corduroy.
Now, did I bring a piece to match? No.
Did I get home and wash it before checking? Yes.
Did they match? No.
The second piece is slightly darker and a finer wale, so in the end I made it into a skirt. It's a Sewaholic Crescent skirt in view B in a size 2. I made no changes and didn't bother trying it on until I was done. It fit, of course.
Here is the back:
