Our best seling high waisted swing pants in top quality British Racing Green fabric - these are limited edition!

High waisted with four lovely quality shell buttons on the left. Wide leg with turn-up at the bottom. So comfy and perfect for dancing!

These are a mid weight fabric, warm but breatheable.Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.

These have been painstakenly researched and are adapted from a late 30s pattern. With a few tweaks here and there, the pattern has been altered enough to fit the modern woman and our modern eye without compromising the vintage details.

Inside leg 31 inches, select size by natural waist measurements.

Made in the UK

These trousers are high waisted - going approx 1 inch above natural waist. Trousers can be harder to fit people due to there being extra measurements to consider such as body length as well as waist, hip and thigh. However, this style has proved very popular and seems to fit people well.

The leg width isnt as wide as our 30s styles (fabric wasnt as readily available in the 40s!) but measures 56cms at the widest leg width part on our size 10.

So - we advise to choose by waist size but also to consider hip and your thigh measurement. This is not a great style for pear shapes but great for pillar, inverted triangles.

Our trousers are made with fabric that has a touch of stretch in it. This means that there is some margin if your measurements dont come up exactly like our table below.

I love the color, the fit and how I feel when wearing them. I have them in brown too and the brown pair got their first mending after 2 years when the seam in the groin connecting the legs together was worn out. Fabric gets quite quickly burled if your thighs touch when you walk, and same goes for if you have a bag on you hip. I also had to re-attach a few buttons after wearing them 5-6 times, so the quality is not that fantastic, but as it should be considering the good price. Overall happy with my pants. :)

I am an hourglass shape, 170 cm tall and the pants flatter my waist and works soo good with both heels and flats. I match it with short-waisted knitwear on the colder days. I want this in some cool tartan pattern too, or a grey wool-blend!

I bought these, as I loved these in the Festival of Vintage show in York. I already had a blue pair and the fit and quality of them is superb. The amount of compliments I get when wearing them are a great boost too. I always feel fabulous and confident wearing them!
