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

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.
I just love these shorts. I got a UK8 (waist around 67cm, hips around 99cm), and just like the other colours they fit beautifully. The length is perfect an prevents any chaffing from happening, and at the same time the fabric doesn't "get ruched up" in the thigh areaa when walking (and I have thick tighs, so this is a requirement everytime I buy shorts!). I really really love this fabric, it doesn't need ironing, it's very fresh and breathable, and it's very easy to mantain and care for. I have them in every colour they released (except the linen ones), and in all of them I wear a UK8, so I would say the sizing is pretty consistent (at least for my measurements). I hope they release them in a dark ochre colour in the future because these would look stunning! I even bought one for my sisters and they don't want to wear any other shorts ever.
