The term middy twill
is used for many fabrics that are sturdy and have a twill
weave. Traditionally made of cotton
, middy twill
today is likely to include at least some man-made fibers
in its construction. When middy blouses are in fashion (a loasefitting, hip-length overblouse with a sailor collar) the most popular color for this twill
is navy blue. It is used also for school uniforms.
