Imagine the perfect pair of shorts: Wide leg so they don't cling to your thighs, elastic waist that's comfy without being cinched or bunchy and generous pockets in the side seams. Imagine no longer - here they are!
Made from a variety of vintage cottons these amazing cheerful patterns are so much fun and sure to become a summer fave worn with a simple tee or singlet and a pair of sandals or sneakers. Our Cami or Kite Tops make a great match!
As always, we have taken much care to finesse the design with a professional Patternmaker for the ultimate in flattering form and wearability. They suit a variety of body shapes and sizes and if these go well we will extend the size range to include a 6-8 and 16-18 in the next batch.
Waistband designed to sit on the belly button but the elastic allows you to pull up for high waisted look or they can be worn lower toward the hips if you prefer
Wide leg allows for room across the thighs, finishing above the knee/mid thigh
Silhouette feels almost like an a-line skirt
Deep pockets hidden neatly in the side seams have plenty of room for your phone and keys etc.
One of a kind or only a few per print. Once these vintage fabrics have been used - that's it, they can never be repeated!
Individually hand cut in my studio then sewn by a small business, both in Marrickville Australia.
Genuine vintage fabric in mint condition.
Cold handwash or gentle machine wash inside a washbag using mild phosphate-free detergent
Hot iron but still look great un-ironed if you like a more natural texture
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Average to generous fit, running true to size, including on curvy or tall body shapes. Consistent fit with our other designs, go for your usual size.
Model wears 12-14, average height.
Please get in touch with any questions, we are always happy to help.
To check your size, lay flat something similar you have at home and run the tape measure across it. These are dimensions of the garment, not the body.
Remember the waistband is elastic so there's some flexibility with sizing. It is very soft and stretchy, not stiff at all. The waist measurement is of the shorts as they are, not pulled open to their widest point.
The hip measurement has been taken straight across from the base of the pockets to consider where most women are widest at their bottom and thighs.
The length measurement is taken the front of the shorts so that you get a sense of where they finish on the legs. However the back of the shorts are actually deeper to allow room for your bottom even though they appear to be equal in length once you have them on.
