Shorts are pleated throughout (3 on each side - including the centre front gusset pleat) and are the forerunner design favoured for girls school gym shorts - nostalgic and sweet, these shorts are a perfect addition to any 30s and 40s vintage fan wardrobe and great for summer! We love them with navy and ivory.

They are very cute! I bought these shorts for my summer holidays and am delighted. They sit on your waist and finish approx 3 inches above the knee. The fabric is soft and comfortable with a good weight which gives the skirt a nice swing. The side zip and button leaves it flat across the tummy. I bought the tan colour which goes with lots of blouses. I wore them with sandles or pumps for dressing up or down. I haven't washed them yet so can't let you know how that goes. Happy holidays!
