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.
Oh my goodness! I'm so in love with my trousers! The fit is just so comfortable and the fabric, the way it hangs and just everything about them is perfect! The colour (rust) goes with everything and I've had so many compliments. They're perfect for summer and winter and at 5'5 the length is perfect and I have the option of wearing them with flats which is great as they look so fabulous with sandals. I am so happy with my purchase and I will be ordering more colours soon!
Wow wow wow. I am so happy with my new trousers. They fit me like a glove. I have ordered other styles slightly bigger as I don’t like them too tight. These trousers fit perfectly. The are so comfortable to wear as they have a slight stretch to the material. I love the retro style of them but mix them with with colour block layers to get the look I am after. Perfect length too. Thank you. If you could make the green ones available in a size 12 I will buy another pair. Thank you so much for making such brilliant authentic clothing with the comfort of modern tailoring . If I could give you 10 stars I would do it.
