Our best selling 1940s swing pants are now available in rust!
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 Europe
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.
The colour is gorgeous, lovely fabric, soft and nice drape, I got the UK 10 and am 28 inches in the waist, they fit perfectly. So easy to wear, right length in the leg, only wish they had pockets then they would be perfect.
Beautiful trousers,I just adore the colour it's a lovely warm hue but not too bright.
The fabric is a nice weight so that they fall very well.
The cut is extremely flattering,they nip in at the waist and the wide legs balance the shilohette well,they really emphasise the waist and hips without being clingy.
The attention to detail is wonderful,the shell buttons are too cute.
I normally find trousers extremely long and usually have to take them up even when wearing quite a high heel,I am 5 foot 5 inches for reference, however I was very pleasantly surprised that these are not that long on me and I can get away with just a low 2.5 inch heel so don't have to alter the length as I never wear flats, which makes me love these trousers all the more.
Now which colour to get next?!
