These splendid pleated shorts are adapted from an original and a pattern and they are just fabulous!

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.

These fit on the natural waist and have a single shell button fastening with a short zip.

I followed the size info, and bought the size that matched my waist measurements. Although they were very comfy, they kept falling down to my hips. For a modern look they were fine, but I wanted the proper vintage look, so I returned them and ordered my normal high street size. They now fit perfectly round my waist, though my stomach is a little more obvious then I would like, but they are still very comfy and I love wearing them with the Sailor blouse.
