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.
- 4 pleats
- firm waistband
- top stitching detail
- side zip & shell button
- deep gusset
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 painstakingly researched and are adapted from an original 1930s pattern with further inspiration taken from an original pair of ladies tennis shorts.
Length from natural waist: approx 16.5 inches
Made in the UK

We advise to choose by your waist size. There isn't any stretch in the waist but you can move the button if needed.
This means that there is some margin if your measurements don't come up exactly like our size guide.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
When I received these shorts in the mail the other day, I was excited by the richness of the red color and the quality of the fabric. Unfortunately though, the style doesn't fit me. I am too tall. So although I always love to show off my long legs, these shorts do flatter them to some excess, but not so much my backside. The pleats are sticking out in a way that doesn't look pleasant. So I was saddened to return them in the mail today, but it's no use. More luck next time, I hope.
These shorts are the answer to all my shorts problems this summer! I normally hate shorts but these are kinda like a skirt but are also shorts so I will be able to happily cycle in them! The colour is a lovely rich red and the fabric is comfortable with a nice bit of give. I could have probably sized down in these but I’m really happy with the fit!
