You would be forgiven for wondering over the name we've given this playsuit. While searching Wikipedia for the appropriate purple name to describe the colour, we came across a shade called "Pomp and Power". What a name! Apparently it was in the 2nd edition of the "Dictionary of Color" from 1950. So even though our shade is a little less dusky, we couldn't resist the era appropriate name.

The colours are lovely bright bunch of purple, lilac and mulberry flowers with light emerald leaves. The background is ivory, not quite cream. The fabric is 100% cottton, machine washable and the garment is made right here in the UK!

Our shorts are made from exactly the same pattern as our trousers, with the finished inside leg measurement being 4". They also have our now famous inlay and split waistband in the centre back, meaning they can be let out or taken in at the waist if needed. An inlay is that extra wide back seam that men have in their good suit trousers, meaning they can have the same pair even if they have changed shape. Why should they have all the flexibility?

100% Cotton Machine washable.
