A splendid new addition to our 40s separates collection - these fabulous new trousers are an authentic rework of an original 1940s trouser pattern adapted for the modern figure and in modern fabric. Very Katherine Hepburn!
Packed with features, this style has a wide leg with turn-up, a high waist band, side zip and fastens with a single shell-look button. The wide leg is approx 22 inches circumference. Deep pleat on the front runs into a strong and slimming crease. Style also has 2 darts on the back. Topped off with contrast top stitching - this is a fantasic and authentic style.
Key 40s features:-
- wide leg
- natural waist fit with deep waist band
- turn up
- side zip with shell-look button
- deep front pleat

Fits on the natural waist with a wide waist band. So comfy.
Very wide leg style is great for dancing and was very typical in the 30s & 40s during the rise of sports casual styles.
Leg length: 32"
Fabric: Rayon/poly with a touch of elastene for stretch
Care: 30 degrees machine wash
Manufactured in the UK
These trousers fit on the natural waist but do have a nice wide waist band which can fit slightly high on some people. The fabric has some stretch but this is more a comfort stretch.
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

Inside leg 32 inches, select size by natural waist measurements.
I just received this beauty in the mail along with the 30s Prim Blouse and I'm devastated to admit it doesn't fit. I already own a pair in burgundy red (size 10) and it's a perfect fit. The same style in black and it's a bit too snug around my hips. The material (though beautiful and soft) seems to be a little different, so that might be the issue for me. Either way, I'll consider getting the Swing Trousers in black instead. A bit different in style but looking gorgeous as well.
Absolutely gorgeous pants, very flattering and a great fit. They remind me of something Lauren Bacall would wear in one of my favorite 1940s noir films. The craftsmanship and detailing are excellent. Also love the waterfall skirt I purchased. I’ve been collecting reproduction vintage for years and this is the highest quality I’ve ever seen! Wonderful historical accuracy, very flattering fit and so comfortable. I’ll just add that my husband loved these slacks on me so much he insisted I buy a second pair in the berry color :)
