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
- top sticthing 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: approx 43cm to 48cm relating to size *longer on higher sizes

We advise to choose by your waist size. There is some stretch in the waist but you can move the button if needed. Customer feedback has told us that this garmernt has been generous.
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.
These are the only shorts I wear in the summer, and I can already tell these will be forever my favourite. I have a pair in every single colour, but these ones hit different. The green is so rich and deep and vibrant, the fit is superb (I got a UK8 for my 68cm waist -100 cm hips, and there's still some room left at the waist and plenty on the hips), and also these are great if you don't want to show your hip dips for whatever reason. The fabric shrinks lightly after washing but it's barely noticeable, and these are also a great option for hiking! If you want to look like a US Wildlife ranger, pair it with the celadon Bonnie blouse and you'll be set!
I love the style, colour and fit of these shorts. I was a bit worried that I would look like a middle aged woman in a school hockey skirt but I loved them as soon as I put them on. They're flattering even though I'm pear shaped.
Another great buy from HOF!
