These splendid pleated shorts are adapted from an original and a 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 button fastening with a short zip.
- 4 pleats
- firm waistband
- top stitching detail
- side zip & shell 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.
Length from natural waist: approx 16.5 inches
Made in the UK

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 table below.
I absolutely adore this shorts!!! I bought them in navy and the fit was way too big, so I sized down in this colour and the measures are almost perfect! I have a 65cm waist, and 98cm hips, so I was worried a UK8 wouldn't fit me properly ,but as the UK10 was really big on me, I decided to try it. But it did, and it's almost perfect! I just have to readjust the waist and it will be spot on!
I was inspired to buy these shorts and the 30s Prim Blouse from a spread that featured the ensemble on What Katie Did's website. My waist is somewhere between 27-28 inches, and the 10 is perfect. Love the weight and feel of these shorts, too!
