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 am very pleased with my purchase, the colour, quality and fit are very good. I ordered size 12 and they flatter your figure, I am looking forward to wearing my new trousers.

I'm glad I snapped these up as green is my favourite colour and I had to have something in a more vintage style.

The material is lovely and soft but take care to not snag them or have anything slightly abrasive against them. Cat claws are my main worry with snags!

The fit is excellent. I bought the 8 and am 164cm tall. In bare feet these do trail slightly but pop on a pair of low heels or flatforms (I know, not 40s style but I have a brogue pair of flatforms so they are a modern twist) and I don't have to take them up. They hang nicely, the fit around my hips and waist is great, comfortable with room to sit. What's better is that this is the first pair of high-waisted trousers that have been flattering on me. I like the buttons off to the side as they are such a nice feature.

I will be wearing these to work, for casual and for some nights out by matching a suitable top. I would love to get these in black and maybe navy. I'm a fan!
