We are thrilled to annouce the arrival of our 40s inspired swing pants!
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 -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 - we call this a 'comfort stretch'. This means that there is a little 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.
My first order from The House of Foxy and I am really impressed. I love the weight, the fall of the fabric and the quality of make of these trousers. They are very accurate to the size guide and fit description. This is the first time I have bought wide-leg trousers and am delighted how elegant they look - even on shortish legs! I am much looking forward to wearing them out but just need to shorten the leg length a little first.
These pants did not fit me at all but they are a very good quality and beautiful so I still gave them 4 stars. I fit within the measurements of the 16 but i have very large hips in comparison to my waist so it did not look good. I would say do not purchase if you have this issue. As well as any kind of bumps because this is not very forgiving.
