We advise to choose by your waist size. There is no 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 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.
Exceeded my expectation on quality and fit. I mostly buy blouses and dresses from HoF, but also have a couple of wool trousers from them. I was worried this style would be too hippy on me (hourglass) but it is great and perfect for hot weather. The linen washes nicely and the stitch down pleats at the top mean things stay crisp looking straight off the drying line.
