Our best selling high waisted swing pants in top quality British Racing Green fabric - these are a limited edition!
These have been painstakingly 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.
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!
Key vintage features:-
- high waisted
- 4 shell button fastening on side
- turn up
- wide leg
These are a mid weight fabric, warm but breatheable. Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.
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 isn't as wide as our 30s styles (fabric wasn't 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 shapes or 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 don't come up exactly like our table below. However if you are between sizes, then choose the size above.

Just love these! Got the racing green in a size 10. I'm 5'4 and they fit like a dream. Just the right length with a pair of 40's heels, otherwise a tad long, but the heels really do the trick, and ooze slenderness!
Coupled mine with the red tie neck blouse and cable crop cardi in gold... just stunning.
Also paired them with the keyhole bouse in crocus print and poppy spray, yep I have all those too!
Let's not forget the quality, and how the fabric falls, just a winner. Even danced in them too, they swing in all the right places ;-) Will be back for more!
I LOVE these trousers: beautiful colour, flattering fit and perfect for 40s style outfits. They are really comfortable for both swing dancing and everyday wear. I'm 161cm tall so they are slightly long in the leg in flat shoes, but are fine with a pair of low heels. I will definitely be getting more in other colours! X
