HOUSE OF FOXY | PLEATED SHORTS

Insight & Inspiration

These pleated shorts look like a skirt from a distance, a lovely flattering style with authentic 1940s style. Copied from a late thirties pattern this style would have been worn throughout the war and beyond. If you are a fan of vintage styling then you will love these!

Wear then with sandals for casual or seamed stockings and heels for 40s pin up glamour.

Detailed Description

These fasten at the side with a zip and a contrast button.

These shorts have 4 pleats (3 on each side and a centre front gusset pleat)

The fabric has a bit of give for comfort but the waistband is top sewn so has no stretch. This sits on the natural waist and have a single shell button fastening , there is also a concealed zip for best fit.

The fabric has a good weight to it so pleats stay in place.

Clare at Foxy painstakingly researched and adapted these from an original 1930s pattern with further inspiration taken from an original pair of ladies tennis shorts. We love that she makes these here in the UK.

Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.

Length from natural waist: approx 16.5 inches
