These splendid pleated shorts are adapted from an original 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 look button fastening with a short zip.

Key features:-

- 4 pleats
- firm waistband
- top stitching detail
- side zip & shell style 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.

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.

So glad I bought these in multiple colourways! They are going to be so versatile for summer. I ordered a size 8 in the black and bottle green and found them to be about an inch too big in the waist (my waist size is approx. 25.5 inches) but this was easily altered.

These are fantastic! The fabric is sturdy but a lot softer than I expected, so it drapes and flows beautifully. I got the 14 and they're true to size. The top part has a nice tailored fit but aren't too snug on my (ample) hips. The only thing that could possible make them more perfect would be a pocket!
