Two Middies Top by Folkwear

(Code: FWP211)
The Middy has been a fashion classic for over a hundred years, although it has been a part of naval tradition since the days of sailing ships. Its popularity peaked in the 1920s when newly-liberated women wore Middies for active sports and with skirts for more dressy occasions.

Our View A is a very simple garment worn by British seamen in tropical climes. Traditionally made of a white cotton twill with blue binding around a square neck, the Shirt features short sleeves and a self-patch in the back.

In the 1920s, View B was worn for school, office and sports, often paired with a pleated skirt. Comfortable and practical, it has been popular fishing and camping wear for decades. A square Middy collar, short set-in sleeves, band cuffs, and a side buttoned hip band, detail this popular shirt. A tab below the V-neck opening catches the contrasting scarf or tie often worn with this Middy. Instructions for tie are included, as well as instructions for adding soutache, braid, patches, and traditional embroidery.

Sizes: Women's XS-2XL; Men's S-2XL
Suggested fabrics: Views A & B: Medium- to heavy-weight cotton, denim, cotton twill, and blends; rayon; heavy-weight silk; wool challis; knits.
View B, also: Wool flannel; pinwale corduroy.
