These come up generous in comparison to our regular ladies swing trousers so you can choose a size down
Beach pyjamas of the 1930s were sold separately or made as sets, trousers and a top and perhaps a jacket to coverup with.
Black is always acceptable and these will take you from beach wear in summer to dance wear in winter. Black seems to thrive when put to work in contrasts, such as with white or Ivory, or highlights of tan. Black loves summer stripes too
The fabric is lovely, and we were so glad to get our hands on it (It sells out each year). It is a stretch linen-Viscose with 27% Linen, 70% Viscose and 3% spandex. The Linen lends it weight and that richness of long summer days at ease, the viscose lends it extra drape and swish (gotta love a swish) and the spandex helps the garment keep it’s shape. Now a warning: It did shrink up a little when washed at 30 degrees, It went from 31” inside leg to 29.5” after ironing. This is common for linen and viscose and we have left 1.5” hem allowance to help if you need the length.
Please do not use a dryer for viscose (any viscose, not just ours) as it will shrink in both length and width and you will not regain it when ironing it out. Washing will cause slight shrinkage
We added an elasticated waistband at the back. It's not authentic, but we thought of everyone at the beach, eating ice creams and feeling hot, and sitting on the sand. A firm waistband just doesn't seem comfortable enough. So we made the decision for comfort, and added the sash so you can hide that elastic and swan about like a film star with a lovely long sash about your waist.
Once you've placed your order we'll ask our UK manufacturers to finish it for you. It could take up to a week. (We'll keep you informed regarding the delivery date)
