1930s Sailor Trousers

These trousers were inspired by those of the 1930s that were conceived as an elegant, demure, yet "sportive" alternative for the avant-garde lady to the default skirts of that era. They have since become one of my favorite garments in my closet. They are perfect for bumming around, being so comfortable, as well as going on a date on a night when it's a bit nippy and a skirt seems too risque. The black linen trousers are fitted only at the medium-high waist and upper butt, flaring out very wide all the way to the floor with a wide, hand-sewn hem. Two conveniently placed (and large enough for a real lady with real actual stuff, unlike some of the things designers want us to wear these days) patch pockets adorn the front.

The bib has three buttons on each side, a medley of opalescent mother-of-pearl in graduating sizes. The wide leg is also so flattering, and i get compliments almost every time i wear them. Each of my garments is made to order.

If you need it sooner, contact me and i will let you know if that's possible. Also, please let me know if you need it by a specific date, even if it's a ways down the line, so i can make extra sure to get it to you in time. Ranunculus market's standard sizing is as follows.

Xs: waist 24, hip 36. S: waist 28, hip 39. M: waist 33, hip 42. L: waist 37, hip 45. Please select the size that's closest to your measurements (always err on the larger side).

I'm always glad to explain how to take measurements, so convo me if you have questions. If your size falls significantly outside of these standard sizes, rm is glad to tailor the garment to fit for a 10% additional cost. Some garments will require that a muslin precursor be mailed and fitted on you prior to making the final garment.

You can learn more about the muslin service here. Rm loves custom read about our custom design process in our shop policies. For a simple fabric switcheroo, custom color or alternate fabrics can be procured through our swatch service. Fabrics may vary slightly, but will always be lovely. Please read our shop policies for detailed information about ordering. Photography by the lovely naomi odean: oneaviandaemon. See the pink silk shirt (pictured above) here.
