Reliable, classy and unpretentious. That’s the kind of bona fide we’d expect from a fabric such as this soft khaki cotton twill fabric which comes to us from a high-end designer source. With a fine twill weave and excellent opacity without bulkiness, we think this is a versatile fabric which will find any number of uses in your wardrobe. What’s more, this is a classic shade of softest green which we think you’ll find works well with any number of other colours.
This is a fabric with an elegant structure which manages to hold a shape well, as you can see from this video.
Our refined soft khaki cotton twill fabric has no stretch content, however due to the twill weave, there is a little ease across the width of the fabric. Cut your trousers down the length of the fabric as you usually would, and your cigarette pants, clamdiggers, capri crops – or whatever your legwear of choice happens to be – will give just a little bit. However that ease is nowhere near what spandex will give you and so you’ll need to make sure your pattern has some ease factored into its design.
Of course trousers aren’t the only possibility for our khaki cotton twill fabric. A jacket with a close fit to the back and waist looks neat and satisfying – and a classic cloth such as our khaki cotton twill fabric would do the trick nicely. Suits, fitted dresses and skirts to meet both informal and formal requirements would all be options. Back on the trouser front however, we think our khaki cotton twill fabric would be perfect for the ‘Lander’ Pant by True / Bias which we know is a current favourite for lots of you (we’ve downloaded a copy too – watch this space…)
Machine wash at 40 degrees but we recommend dry-cleaning lined garments. Find out more on our About our fabric pages.
