Our best selling high waisted swing pants in top quality British Racing Green fabric .

Our best selling 1940s swing pants are now available in khaki green!

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 mock 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 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 Yorkshire, England

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 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.

I originally wanted these trousers in black, but they were sold out in my size. After lurking on the website for a couple of days, I saw these gorgeous racing green ones and jumped on the occasion. These trousers do not miss! I was a tad worried about the fit as I have a small waist and large hips, but they fit splendidly. I am rather short (163cm) and the UK12 are perfectly fine to wear with a small heel. They are perfect to wear to both the office and dance classes, which makes me quite happy. They have a little bit of stretch and are incredibly comfortable. I would also like to note that customer service is amicable, helpful and responds in a timely manner. It has been a joy to order from The House of Foxy and it is a joy to wear these amazing trousers.

I adore the racing green colour! These are my second pair of the swing trousers and they don't disappoint. The fit is great and they're the comfiest trousers I've ever had! Length is just right to be able to wear with flat shoes/sandals. Quality is great and it's hard not to get them in ever colour!
