I arrived in pencil - verypppencil - black skirt and black seamed stockings just to hear that only trousers while they handed me polyester formless creation.
I nearly fainted, decided no to sleep and went shopping the next day.
Unfortunately it is impossible to find in shops for ordinary mortals trousers made of cotton +-mix with high tight waist and wide legs means Swing 40s Trousers. By tight, I mean 12-13 inches difference between hips and waist.
For today's standards I should definitively get few litres of filler on my belly. I tried, moving buttons, creating gathers with not 'so so' but only 'so' effect.
I travelled through miles of Clothes Reproduction websites and Vintage Online Shops.
Sure you can find 40s trousers, but black? no.
There's Vivien of Holloway, 55GBP my first choice.
I've called, I've been there and I've written few times and they don't expect to produce black cotton trousers in the nearest future however once a month they have this kind of inquiry. Vivien of Holloway makes the best waistline ever !
Tara Starlet stick only to non black production for crazy 60 GBP.
Heydays almost fulfilled my dreams. I was ready to pay 55GBP - a lot! and accept polyester viscose mix but then they don't have my size. Even though Ms Helen insisted brown chock is oh so dark! I didn't proceed. However they expect to have more sizes in stock quite soon.
Lady - K - Loves poly viscose mix with a lot of stretch in black for kind 35GBP. Again not in my size... coming soon!
